Hello,

Iím looking for application like WinZip that can create .gz archive files. I need them to extract files on my websites server.

Also, is there other file format except .gz that can be extracted on websites server?

gz, tar, bzip etc files can be created through command line controls on any unix / linux type server, you can run those commands either through ssh, an sh job or, if the hoster supports it, through the php system() function.

I think php also supports natively gzip, can't remember.

Those programs are included in most *nix os'es. Search for howtos.

Hi 2by4,

I'm not that advanced in Linux.

I'm looking for simple desktop application that can create these files.

I think WinAce supports all these types too.
