php exec problem with unzip

P: 26
I want to upload a zip file and then extract/unzip it. I am accomplishing this with php exec command. I am calling unzip from php exec command within a php script and it is not extracting files. why?
[PHP]<?php
echo exec('unzip file.zip');
?>[/PHP]

i checked apache logs and it says

checkdir error: cannot create xtheme-1-1
unable to process xtheme-1-1/comments.php.
checkdir error: cannot create xtheme-1-1
unable to process xtheme-1-1/dbx.css.
It works perfectly fine when i unzip using SSH command line..
how to fix this problem.

Make sure you set the file permissions of that folder to 777 or the lowest allowable for the script to work.
