VirtualHost blocking download and unzipping

Hi everyone,

After following the Sticky Topics in this forum I was able to create a Virtuahost to host a project (thanks for that btw!). Everything worked until I tried to download updates while using my project. It appears that my host in its configuration is supposed to allow downloading and unzipping files. I have copied a zip file and put in the VirtualHost folder but it didn't work. I have searched in the PHP configuration but I couldn't find the exec () function which is the one I apparently need or even an unzipping button in the PHP Configuration options. I have looked at the PHP documentation but this is not mentioned. I have also searched this forum but I couldn't find anything. I'm a newbie in this so it's possible that I have missed something in my research or in the configuration.

Can someone please help with this or at least direct me towards the documentation as I cannot find anything about this?

Thanks!

However, it is very easy to search and find in the official PHP documentation.
http://php.net/manual/en/
And, in the search form, you simply type "exec" (Without quotes)
To get:
http://php.net/manual/en/function.exec.php

Thanks Otomatic! (I have searched exec with the brackets, I think ithat's why I didn't have any results)
