    Hi,

    I got a problem with a backup file.

    My hosting is using cpanel.

    I am tyring to extract backup.tar.tgz created on a ensim server.

    I tried using tar but could not extract the contents.

    What could be the best way to extract this?

    Regards,

    Just go into a temp directory someplace and run tar -xzvf /path/to/backup.tar.tgz You'll get an error near the end of the extract because there is an Ensim "signature" on the tarball but it iwll extract what you need.
