OK, let's say I want to compress all of /thefolder/, and save it at / as backup.gz, how could I go about doing this?

you would first need to make a tarball of the content of that folder then compress that tar file , I think PEAR has a tar class , or perhaps in PECL .

else exec() , e.g.

exec('tar -cf thefolder.tar thefolder');
of course if you are exec()ing anyway you can also compress at the same time
exec('tar -czf thefolder.tgz thefolder');
