Unzip a file in one of the prestashops folder

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am trying to upload a zip file into a folder of prestashop "csv_import" which I created beacuse I want to upload a csv of my products! Because the large size of csv the file must be zipped!! So when I upload it I want a module imports into my db after unzip the csv file. I tried these diferrent codes into one of the files of the module but doesn't work!



/* $zip_file = 'http://blablabla/import_csv/prototype_csv.zip';

$zip = new ZipArchive;

$res = $zip->open($zip_file);

if ($res === TRUE) {



  echo 'woot!';

} else {

  echo 'doh!';





 $zip_file = _PS_ROOT_DIR_ . "/import_csv/prototype_csv.zip"; 

//$extract_dir = dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/theCSV/';

//$file = dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/theCSV/Eshop.csv';

//$file = $_FILES['filecsv'];

            if ($zip_file['error'] == 0) {

                //move_uploaded_file($csv['tmp_name'], dirname(__FILE__) . "/images/" . $img['name']);

                $zip = new ZipArchive;

                //$a = _PS_ROOT_DIR_ . "/import_csv/" . $zip_file;

                $res = $zip->open($zip_file);

                if ($res === true) {

                    $zip->extractTo(_PS_ROOT_DIR_ . '/the_csv');


echo 'woot!';


               else {

echo 'doh!';
