Hi @hiteshvisit,

To enable PHP zip extension you’ll need to do the following

PHP 7:

sudo apt-get install php7.0-zip

PHP 5:

sudo apt-get install php5-zip

Make sure to restart your server afterwards.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart or sudo service nginx restart

If you still don’t have zip enabled or something fails along the way, please do the following as well

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libz-dev -y
pecl install zlib zip
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Kind regards,
Kalin D.
