I get this error when ever I try to install any Laravel bundle using Artisan:
- Code: Select all
Fatal error: Class 'ZipArchive' not found in ../../project/laravel/cli/tasks/bundle/providers/provider.php on line 35
Asking on Laravel forum, I found out that my PHP installation doesn't have "zip extension" installed, and that I should "compile PHP" again with this zip extension enabled.
Now, I really have no idea what all that means, so can anyone please help me with this? What does "compile PHP" mean, and how should I do it properly with zip extension enabled? Is there any tutorial online?
I should mention that I run XAMPP 1.8.0 on 64bit Ubuntu Linux 12.04
