This code inspects the file in zipLocation then iterates over them to check if there are csv files. If it finds something it copies inside the directory with its original name, then copies another copy with a new name.

$zipLocation = "path/to/";

$zip = new ZipArchive;

if ($zip->open($zipLocation) === true) {
    for($i = 0; $i < $zip->numFiles; $i++) {
        $filename = $zip->getNameIndex($i);
        if (pathinfo($filename, PATHINFO_EXTENSION)=="csv"){
            $fileinfo = pathinfo($filename);
            copy("zip://".$zipLocation."#".$filename, "./newname.csv");
            copy("zip://".$zipLocation."#".$filename, "./".$fileinfo['basename']);
