The extension providing ZipArchive is not available
« on: November 13, 2018, 01:21:23 am »

I just disabled all of my plugins and ran the cpg installer and got the following message:

The extension providing ZipArchive is not available

I'm not sure how to proceed.
Thanks,
Steven Cohen

The installer relies on the ZipArchive extension class to perform the install. If it's not (or can't be made) available on your server, you'll have to do a manual install (see Documentation menu item above).

Thank you for your response.  I did not see a link for documentation for 1.6 install just 1.5.  It might be a problem that I tried the install once on my server and it didn't work (I think because I hadn't disabled all the plugins).  So then I rolled back my site and now and trying to upgrade again.  With 1.6 can I do a manual install without losing my images by keeping my album folder and deleting everything else and uploading all the files for 1.6 to my server?
I appreciate the help.  My site is running slow and I'm hoping the upgrade to 1.6 will help with that.
All the best,
Steve

Just follow the directions: http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/upgrading.htm#upgrade_any

True 1.6 documentation is lagging.
