It may be that you're zipping up things by providing their full absolute pathnames, and those pathnames cannot (will not) be created on the server. It would be quite a security nightmare if you could indicate where you'd like your files extracted, possibly overwriting existing, important, files. (read about the -i option of the unzip command). When creating your own Zip files, follow the instructions from the webpage: rm -f ; zip -r dirA to create Zip files with relative pathnames, not absolute ones.
