Uncompress Zip Files From Direct Admin





Ratmaster
I've only seen one other site host and it is very useful.
How about an option in the file manager if you have a zip file, there is an icon to uncompress it? Like to place all the files in their correct places without manually doing it yourself.
(This is not a good idea if you are unloading mods for phpBB though)

I am sorry if this is the wrong place to post this...

You can uncompress .tar.gz files, though. Or are you asking for a feature to which allows extracting .zip as well as .tar.gz files?
Ratmaster
I don't really use tar.gz files but that is basically what I am asking.

As saratdear has said, it's possible to extract the contents of tar.gz files in DirectAdmin - the servers run Linux, so this is the default compressed filetype, so I'm not sure if it would actually be possible to extract the contents of zip files on a Linux server. However, you can use any one of several free archiving programs to recompress your zip file to tar.gz format and then extract them directly on the server.

Free programs to try:
TugZip
7-zip

There is also another discussion about tar.gz files here on the Frihost Forum that you may find useful.

CPanel runs on Linux, and you can extract .Zip archives on that.
You can do it in PHP :
