[Solved] Bug? ZIP files don't work
RowanFromBJC (51)

ZIP files don't display text for me, which makes sense, but when I upload a zip file to repl.it and try to get the files inside it with the unzip command, it says unzip: cannot find or open file.zip, file.zip.zip or file.zip.ZIP., even though the file is uploaded and exists. Then, when I reload the page I get taken to a cloudflare page saying repl.it servers are down. I'm not sure if the servers are having trouble today, or if it's a bug, or if it's just my computer.

@RowanFromBJC hmmm im not sure. everything works fine with me:

Here i uploaded a zip file with the files learnlang.png, output-onlinepngtools.png, and ship.PNG.

I typed unzip cool.zip and then i got the files. I am not sure what is wrong with yours...
