    unzipping in FTP

    I'm going crazy with having to upload a million files to my server, it takes forever even on a fast connection. I can upload a zip in like 3 seconds, but have no way to unzip it via FTP.

    Does anyone have a solution? Is there a FTP program out there that will allow me to unzip a file?

    I'm at the point where I'll almost consider writting such an app in PHP.

    Maybe I should just switch hosts so I can use SSH.

    Any suggestions?

    You could ask them to extract it for you, so you upload it to the dir and they go in and unzip it, would take em a whole 2 min

    OK, I just talked to my GURU, and he suggests I write the following as a CGI:

    echo "content-type text/html"
    echo ""
    /usr/bin/unzip fullpath/filename

    Does anybody agree with that? Think it could be whipped up into a nice stand alone application?
