I have the same problem like this discussion http://phpexcel.codeplex.com/discussions/45917/

From the link I mentioned above, they said the solution of this problem is install the correct version of php_zip, but what is that version?

I'm using VPS and it's private.

This is the version of PHP I'm using

- PHP 5.3.15 (I MUST use PHP 5.3+ for some reason)
- php_zip 1.11.0

or do you have any solution to fix this bug without updating php or it's extension please tell me.

Thanks in advance

The latest version that you can safely run with your version of PHP.

If you're writing zipped formats (such as Excel2007), then the alternative is to use PCLZip by calling


before instantiating your writer
