Automatic decompress uploaded zip files

Post by FTP »

-- Description: Automatic decompress uploaded zip files
-- You should add the below scripts to the event manager -> FTP or HTTP OnFileUploaded
-- And I suppose you have installed WinRAR in the directory "C:\Program Files\WinRAR"

Code: Select all

local fname = string.gsub("%PathName", "\\","/")
local dpath = string.sub(fname,0,string.len(fname)-4)
local ext = string.lower(string.sub(fname,-4))

if ext == ".rar" or ext == ".zip" or ext == ".tgz" then 

 os.execute("C:\\Progra~1\\WinRAR\\WinRAR x -Y \""..fname.."\" \""..dpath.."\\\" ")

end

This Script work great. The only question i have is if you can set this script to extract the files in the Archive to the root directory instead of creating another folder within the root directory.

OK, you can make it, just replace the line:

local dpath = string.sub(fname,0,string.len(fname)-4)

into this:

local dpath = string.sub(fname,0,string.len(fname)-string.find(string.reverse(fname),"/"))



BTW, you may write lua script by yourself, it is not very hard.
