Compression Features
Disable Zip browsing
Disable Zip files inline browsing. This can be necessary if you always store huge zip archives: it can have some impact on performance.Booleanfalse
Zip Creation
If you encounter problems with online zip creation or multiple files downloading, you can disable the feature.Booleantrue
Zip Encoding
Set up a specific encoding (try IBM850 or CP437) for filenames to fix characters problems during Zip creation. This may create OS-incompatible archives (Win/Mac).String
Download Delegation
Delegates download operations to an alternative agent, either webserver or pydio agent. Warning, this requires external modules to be installed.

Gzip Download
Gzip files on-the-fly before downloading. Disabled by default, as it's generally useful only on small files, and decreases performances on big files. This has nothing to see with the Zip Creation feature, it's just a on-the-fly compression applied on a unique file at download.Booleanfalse

Temporary Folder
This is necessary only if you have errors concerning the tmp dir access or writeability : most probably, they are due to PHP SAFE MODE (should disappear in php6) or various OPEN_BASEDIR restrictions. In that case, create and set writeable a tmp folder somewhere at the root of your hosting (but above the web/ or www/ or http/ if possible!!) and enter here the full path to this folderString
