The error (I'd say more of a message, really) appears to be quite self-explanatory.

What was the command that you ran?

It doesn't seem like a very "advanced Unix" question, so I've moved the thread.

Hi Prasanna

i think you have failed to give the zipname in the zip command

pls try using this command : zip file.zip sourcedirectory/filename
