unable to unarchive (error 1 - operation not permitted)

With all other programs I tested they unzip just fine (Safari, Terminal unzip, Keka).
Any idea what's the issue?

I've encountered this issue as well, but have not managed to find a fix. The resulting zip can be opened in any extract tool except for Archive Utility. Unfortunately for me, that's what most of my customers will be using.

Perhaps Grandt/PHPZip#4 could provide some helpful information?

Okay I investigated my case more and confirmed that the issue is actually #240. I resolved by making sure each filename is unique by appending an identifier to the filename.

@bmulholland thanks for the pointer. That helped me a lot!

I'm encountering this as well. Checked and it's not a case of #240.

I'm also running into this exact issue. I get the same message in system.log that @mrkamel is seeing

Archive Utility[81908]: bomCopierFatalError:Not a central directory signature

Hi there.. same thing here.. i have the (error 1 - operation not permitted).. found the solution?

and dont have duplicated files.. is something related with permission of files that is on server and include in zip fila?

UPDATED: I made some chages to guarantee that does not have duplicated... but i just could work removing send_file or send_data to return the zip, i'm storing that in a folder and giving to the user a link to be downloaded after.
