PBzip Tool - README


The PBzip tool is one file which can be uploaded to a webhost together with a ZIP file. The ZIP file can contain something like a whole website, CMS or web application which should be installed on the host. The upload is a lot faster because there is only one ZIP file to upload which contains all the necessary installation files. After uploading the two files, the PBzip tool can unzip the archive on the host. After decompressing the files the PBzip tool should be renamed or deleted. This tool uses the PhpConcept Zip Module 2.8.2 of Vincent Blavet.
