Better backup files ZIP compression

Post by Iw0 »

I saw that new PHPBB has zip compression support for backup files. Maybe try using 7-zip build in ZIP archiver. For ZIP and GZIP formats 7-Zip provides compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip.

If you provide us with a PHP class to zip and unzip using that algorithm we'll consider it.
