    Question zip files and ssh command help please

    HI,

    I have transfer a few zip files over and are like:

    file.tar.gz.part1
    file.tar.gz.part2
    file.tar.gz.part3
    and so on...

    how do i unzip them together?
    i tried:

    tar zxvf file.tar.gz then i got an error
    then i tried
    tar zxvf xx.tar.gz.part1 then it started unziping and it said that there was an unexpected end! i guess it didnt start with part2 once part1 was completed

    how do deal with this?

    Change the naming convention

    Rename the following filenames:

    file.tar.gz.part1
    file.tar.gz.part2
    file.tar.gz.part3

    to

    part1.tar.gz
    part2.tar.gz
    part3.tar.gz

    and then use the tar command

    tar -zxvf part1.tar.gz
    tar -zxvf part2.tar.gz
    tar -zxvf part3.tar.gz

    Try that out.

    thanks DiBellaweb but it would be best if i could just make a file.tar.gz so i can use the cpanel script to restore the account.

    But the problem is that there are 190 tar files (100mb each) i dont even want to imagine myself sitting down doing this for hours..
