A PHP script to unzip files with file overwriting ?

That script represents a serious security risk, as it requires that the PHP scripts are writable by the web server. I could keep you up all night with horror stories of what is possible in that situation.

i really hate upgrades,ftp ...files.. one by one :-/
is there another way to unzip files with overwrite ? (cpanel)
I upload the zipped file to root.
Uncompress it on my server. I do it with the File Manager in cPanel.
Select all the files in /upload directory. Move /public_html
Done.

Now I think I'll update that other forum.
