    Some linux servers can untar files but not unzip files. You may need to install unzip on your server to do this.

    Unzip can be found at:

    To install:
    1. log into ssh
    2. Switch to root

    #su -

    3. issue these commands

    #gunzip unzip541.tar.gz
    #tar -xvf unzip541.tar.gz
    #cd unzip-5.41
    #make -f unix/Makefile generic
    #make -f unix/Makefile install
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
