    Do you know of FTP software that can unzip files on the server?

    Something to upload the zip file and then unzip it on the server.

    There are ways of doing it in PHP, but I was wondering if there is an app that does it.

    I think there needs to be some unzip executable on the server, but does anybody know for sure?

    There isn't software that can do this. FTP performs a limited set of commands and executing files on the server is not one of them.

    If you have Cpanel the cpanel file manager can do it for you. Otherwise it can be done using PHP or by gaining shell access
