How to ZIP Recursively in Ubuntu

It is easy to ZIP multiple files and folders. You should go with this command in your Terminal.

zip -9 -r <filename.zip> <yourfolder>

for example:

zip -9 -r sqlfiles.zip mysqlfolder

-9 stands for quality. Lower you set the parameter faster it will zips, but the zip file size will be larger. You can set it -1 to -9 for good sake.
