    My site just switched servers and before so I made a complete backup of the site via Cpanel. I've been trying to upload it to my new server but either my connection fails, the server times out or there's some other error before it's fully uploaded (as I type this I have 990MB of 1.78GB uploaded, and still going). Is there any program that I can get that will break it down into smaller parts? Or is there any program that will fully extract the file to my computer that way I can upload file by file (which will take longer, I know)?

    :confused:

    Im assuming it's a tar.gz file? or a .tar file, in this case just download winrar to extract all the files http://www.winrar.com but i'll warn you if you have MySQL backups they may not work after extraction.

    It finally all got uploaded to the server. I'm not sure how to extract it now... I've always used the little tool in cpanel. Any help?

    Move it to /home/ then click the restore full backups and type in the username. I will warn you it might take a few times to work. With very large databases like that I normally create a seperate mysql backup because cpanel will often time out.

    That's what I figured, but when I try to move it to /home it denies the transfer. What permissions should it have?

    What error do you get? As root you should not get any.
