    Is there any way of extracting rar files from cpanel/whm? I know it can do zips but when ever I try to extract a rar file it just shows a blank page.

    Any help?

    Untar files

    Copy the file to the location you want it extracted; then
    unpack the tarball using the command
    tar xvzf filename.tar.gz

    Install unrar, do a search on rpmfind.net and you will get it. Then use that to extract your rar :)

    Did you download the rpm ? Download it and then use this to install

    rpm -ivh filename.rpm

    This will do the trick.
