PHP script to compress files into many ZIP archives

I have 102,000 images in one directory on my Rackspace account. They are NOT sorted into sub-directories, they are all in one giant directory. I need to download these files from my server but I cannot because it seems most FTP programs cannot open/process a folder with 102,000 files.

The real problem here is that I do NOT have SSH access, this is why I believe I need to use PHP.

I need a PHP script (or whatever you recommend that might work better) to somehow take all 102,000 files and ZIP them into different archives that I can download. My main concern is PHP timeout because it is so big, so I am assuming that zipping all of them into one file is not possible.

I can place the PHP file in the directory and run it, I just need it written for me.

Some other ideas that my friend suggested to me:

- Get a list of the filenames and then just generate a script to pull them down one at a time.

- pull them down using wild cards that will get a small number each time A*.jpg, B*.jpg. etc.

- Use several cron jobs to put them in several similar sized zips using the wild cards like above.

Sometimes the zip function is disabled on the server so we will have to check first if it allows it at all.
