    How do I open a .28 file?

    Well it says it is a .28 file..but it isn't sure on how to open..it..I moved from a old server to a new one..and bascially I wanted to fully restore the backup..but I can't since I have no idea what to do with the file..since it isn't a tar ..or gz file..would I convert it to a tar file..if so how? I am really confused about..I havent seen a topic about this..

    I'm completely new at this..so I'm completely..lost..and I'd hate to lose the files..since most of them are not mine.

    it appears to me that file didn't finish downloading. Or whatever you did with it. I'd get back over there and see if you can grab it again quick before they close the account or something.

    I bet it's some kind of archive.

    empty-places[1].net_2006.01.23_19.28

    that's the domain, the date, and the time that the backup was made.

    Try renaming it to some-name.tar.gz and try extracting it.

    To determine the actual file type, you can use the file command from the unix prompt:

    file empty-places[1].net_2006.01.23_19.28
