Create a gzip file in PHP

This is a how-to on making a gzip file out of a text file with PHP. (alternate GNU gzip page.)
Make a file called compreport.php (or whatever you want) and put it this in it:

// Name of the file we are compressing
$srfile = "sourcefile.txt";
//Find out if the file exists do the thing
if (file_exists($srfile)) {
// Name of the gz file we are creating
$gzfile = "compressedfile.gz";
// Open the gz file (w9 is the highest compression)
$fpp = gzopen ($gzfile, 'w9');
// Compress the file
gzwrite ($fpp, file_get_contents($srfile));
// Close the gz file and we are done
echo $gzfile . ' file was generated! ';
//create the file lastmod_varz.php
//then uncomment the following line
//include "lastmod_varz.php"; 
//if source file is missing or has the wrong permissions!
else {
    echo 'The source file ' . $srfile . ' does not exist!!! 
    The compressed file ' . $gzfile . ' was not created or appended!';

Make a file called lastmod_varz.php and put it wherever you put your include files. The lastmod_varz file should have this in it:

$varzfile = $varzfilename;
$last_modified = filemtime($varzfile);
print("Last modified on ");
print(date("m/j/Y" . " @ " . "h:i:s:a", $last_modified));

The lastmod_varz.php can be re-used wherever you want to show when the last modified time was for any file. Just assign the $varzfilename a value either a variable name or a quoted file name:


You could make all that an include page and put some styled <p class="coolpstyle"> tags around it.
