"Download folder content as a zip file" error

27 February 2024, 5:00


I have a bug reported by a user. After investigation, problem is omnipresent and reproducible. Everytime a user try to download folder content as a zip file, the system produce a "Mahara FGA FP: Site unavailable;A nonrecoverable error occurred. This probably means you have encountered a bug in the system".

It's probably a setting error on our server. But I have no clue as to where to look to correct this. Apache error log shows a "Undefined array key "application/zip-compressed".

We're running a 23.04.4 version on a CentOS Linux 7, with php 8.1.27.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Stéphane,

The thing I would check is to make sure the PHP module 'php-zip' is installed and enabled for the server.

You could try

php -m | grep zip

Or you could try the instructions at Centos 7 install php modules under 'Installing a PHP Module'

Please let me know if that is the problem or not

Thank you Robert. Our sysadmin probably forgot to install this module in php 8.2! It did the trick and the error is gone! Great!
