Unpacking Zips in DirectAdmin?





Marston
Is it possible to unpack zips in directadmin? I want to install phpBB, but I don't want to have to upload each file individually... Confused

You can't unarchive ZIP files in DirectAdmin, although you CAN unarchive .tar.gz archives (GZipped Tarballs).

Just unzip the phpBB ZIP file, and then get an archive program that can archive to .tar.gz (like 7-Zip or WinRAR). Use that program to re-archive the files into a .tar.gz file.

If you're using 7-Zip, you need to first add the files into a 'tar' archive. Once that's done, you need to add the tar archive into a 'GZip' archive (basically, there's two layers). The end result will be a [filename].tar.gz file. Upload this, and then DirectAdmin can unarchive it.
