    cpanel back up unzipping

    i used the backup function in cpanel to send a home directory of my site to a new server.

    when i login to the other server i see the zipped file but how can i unzip it? i have cpanel on the other server too and i click restore and it just asks me to click something on my desktop.

    is there a way i can unzip online it and have it in the same folders on the new server as it is on the old server?

    Zip? I'm pretty sure cPanel doesn't zip it.

    You can try cd'ing to it and doing:

    tar -zxvf filename-backup-whateverhere.tar.gz

    if you have root access, you can use command like Bizarre, otherwise, you should contact with your host, to ask their help. They can restore your data quickly.
