Thanks to a friendly user we have found that Dreamhost and possibly others) have a limitation involving the ZipArchive Class.
This can result in an error like this: Fatal error: “Class ‘ZipArchive’ not found…”
Thankfully there is a simple fix for this, follow these steps:
- Login to your Panel
- Click Manage Domains
- Find your domain and under Web Hosting, click Edit
- Under Web Options use the dropdown menu to choose PHP 5.3 (note: You can choose CGI or FastCGI)
- Click Save Settings and wait 5-10 minutes for the result
The above fix works on Dreamhost and should work on other hosts as well (you might have to open a support ticket with them to get it changed). Thanks to John Hartley for the fix.
