Description

I have a 3.3 Tiki Application with a File Gallery configured to store files in the MySQL database. It IS possible to upload zip files and unzip them during the upload. Very useful!

I'm testing a 4.0 instance of the same application, and now the "batch upload" feature does not upload and unzip *.zip files.

I noticed the following comment in the Tiki docs....

"Note that you can use the Batch uploads only when you don't use the database to store the content of the files!"

Was some functionality taken away?! I sure miss it.

If I change to storing files in a directory (instead of the DB),
will that also mean the loss of full-text search capabilities?

Solution
Fixed in 4.x - See attached comment
Workaround

UPDATE - Not A True Work-Around January 13 - 2010
Attached are a Word and PDF doc that describe the
changes (hacks) in filegallib.php that restore the
"unzip zip files" functionality to Tiki 4.1, when
configured to store binary files in the MySQL database.

Unfortuately, my crude hacks circumvent the new file quota checks,
but that feature seems to be the source of my problems. There
is no documentation on how to properly configure quotas, and
the default settings seem to lead to the unzipping problem.

This hack seems to break the full-text search feature that
is provided by connecting Tiki to utilities like "catdoc"
and "pdftotext". Also, this hack seems to break uploading
of multiple files one at a time.
