    Hi,

    Is it possible to extract a zip file from SSH? If so, anyone can tell me?

    Much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    What operating system are you using, Linux? You can unzip a .zip file by using the "unzip" command via SSH. If unzip is not a command on the server, then it means you need to install the unzip program, the easiest way is via RPM packages. The RPMs for unzip can be found at:

    various ways of unzipping depending on the type of compressed file it is.

    unzip
    tar -zxvf
    gunzip
