Unpacking phpBB3 on Direct Admin





Possum
Hi

I want to upload and unpack phpBB3 but the download is not a tar.gz file. But is a phpBB-3.0.RC7.tar.bz2 file. Direct Admin will not unpack this file,,

What can I do as I do not want to FTP the files one at a time. (Tried but never completed)

cheers Possum..

i think you have to use ftp . And if you use a good ftp-client you should be able to transfer 5 files at the same time.

edit: or you could unpack it and repack them on your pc. Software available here: http://www.gzip.org/

It's a whole lot easier using an FTP client. You can just drag and drop the files into the chosen directory.

Hi

Can you unpack zips files remotely using an FTP app

no
with ftp you can only transfer files, not give commandline-like commands.
In directadmin you can unpack tar.gz files and all other files have to be unpacked on your own pc.
