Hi Kaz

Few different ways you can do this, but this example keeps things simple:

Code:
zip -r myfiles.zip /home/mydir/
This will zip everything from /home/mydir/ and above into myfiles.zip

You can also try this below tar command to compress your files :

tar -czvf filename.tar.gz /folder/
Are you sure it will zip everything in mydir/folder?

I zipped public_html folder of my websites and it missed .htaccess file

I had to use this code to zip all files/folders in a folder inclduing .htaccess file.

Code:
zip -r myfilename.zip * .htaccess
Check yours if i can include .htaccess file :D

It is inconvenient to add files after had a zip file. I am wondering why .htaccess file could not be added into zip file. It is a special file or hidden file?
If so, there are other files need to add manually into the command above.
