Downloading a Zip : file is corrupted
« on: January 03, 2008, 08:57:16 pm »

Good evening,

I have spent a lot of time with Frantz (french forum) to find out a solution. I have also looked through the entire forum for a solution. I feel desperate.
My problem is the following : I select one picture and click Add to Favorites. Then I click on My favorites and click dowload as Zip file. The pictures.zip cannot be uncompressed. 7-zip (or whatever) says that the header file is corrupted.

It works perfectly on a public website (http://liminaires.free.fr) but it does not work at home nor at my office.

My local Web server is Wamp 2.0 - PHP Version 5.2.5
Windows Vista
IE7 or Firefox (latest versions)
Php-zip.dll is activated.
Phpinfo is attached

We have already compared our configurations with Frantz (French forum). I can reproduce this problem on several different PCs  (windows XP) at my office.

I cannot find out how I can solve this problem and it is very (very) urgent for me to solve it. The aim is to present a photo gallery at my office (Xampp server - virtual machine).
I can only give access to my PC at home. Let me know if you can help me. Thanks in advance.

There's some strange characters at the start of the file. It's not whitespace. Perhaps a BOM or something. Does it work if you switch to english or change theme?

That's right, the header of the zip file is corrupted.
It does not work either in english.
Just let you know that I have reinstalled (fresh install) coppermine => same problem
I have modified chaoticsoul template but same problem occur with classic theme.
PYAP (from the french forum) told me that it should come from my server (Wamp). But I also tried with Xampp (another server).

Try changing

Code: [Select]
$zip->download_file();

to

Code: [Select]
ob_end_clean();
$zip->download_file();

in include/archive.php

It makes sure nothing is sent to the browser before the zip file begins.

@Nibbler: should this go into the core as a precaution for others with similar issues?

@Nibbler: ignore the above question - I just performed a checkout and noticed that you already added your code to the core both of cpg1.4.x as well as cpg1.5.x. Should have done this before posting my silly question, sorry.

Merged you new thread with the existing one. Don't double post; there is a reason why solved threads don't get locked immediately: you can still reply to them if it seems like a solved issue needs to be looked into further.

I find it hard to believe though that this should be related to the client OS: after all, the zip file creation happens on the server, not on the client: how could a client OS possibly interfere then? Anyway, tested this on Windows XP Professional German SP2 with Firefox 2.0.0.11 and IE7.0.5730.11 on your site - both work as expected, the zip files are perfectly OK.
