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.
