    Hello,

    I've just installed a WordPress blog, and am having trouble downloading a new theme.

    I receive the error message:

    Abort class-pclzip.php : Missing zlib extensions

    Is this a problem with the installation?

    Thanks,
    Sara

    I'm having the same problem. Apparently the default PHP software that came with the system setup didn't have zlib extension turned on.

    From what I can tell at this blog post's comment thread, the PHP5 software has to be reinstalled or re-built.

    thanks。。。but i use the free host

  6. Well, you really can't do anything about it. Your server's PHP configuration is missing the zlib extensions, which is typical of free hosting providers. You'll have to install the theme manually:

    ok for those of you who are having trouble with the error:Abort class-pclzip.php : Missing zlib extensions and you are hosting the website yourself, i am running suse enterprise 10 and went into yast and searched for zlib and the result came up with zlib-php module, i installed that package, restarted apache and was able to successfully upload the file that i wanted i suggest you guys try the same and let me know if it works for you as well.

    Cheers
