.zipx vs .zip 1and1 host cannot unzip .zipx



  • how can i zip files with .zip extension, my webhost 1and1 .com cannot unzip this file extension in webspace explorer.

    This has always the fastest way for me to get a site up and running.

    I have/had no problem now or in the past zipping these files untill I noticed it saves with .zipx extension instead of .zip

    If I try to upload all these in FTP PA will hang. so I really just need to zip, upload, extract

    Thanks for any help.

    1. Open PowerArchiver
    2. 'Options’
    3. 'Configuration’
    4. ‘Compression Profiles’ , select the Default for Zip.

    Within that change the ‘method’ from ‘Optimized’ to ‘Deflate’ and press ‘Ok’



  • WOW, thanks. that was easy…

    big up Richard! 🙂


  • conexware

    we should set this to default 🙂



  • Thanks for the help.
    I made a profile so I can use it both ways.
    by default is set to .zip.
