Hi itdungpt,

Can you please let me know how much ram is allocated to you vps server and what is size of the tarball you are creating.

Please also let us the load on the VPS server.
For checking load on vps run command >>> top in the ssh terminal (please post the output here)

And to create an tar file following command needs to run:
tar -cvf folder_name

And to extract:
tar -xvf folder_name
