Hi,

With an hook on PkgAcct:Create we add some data in the account backup as well as in the package generated when transfering an account from one server to another.

We try to retrieve those data using another hook on PkgAcct:Restore.

The problem is that in any stages (postExtract or post) we can access the unarchived package.

We guessed it could be :

Code:
$data->{'dir'} . '/' . $data->{'extractname'}
But this directory doesn't exists.

Does anyone know where is the archive extracted ?
Why is it not accessible in an output parameter ?

Thank in advance for any tips.

Hi all,

An answer to ourselves...

Finally we use Perl Archive::Tar module to solve this problem and everything works now like a charme.

Thanks for the time you spent on our problem and have a nice week-end,
