CPanel support hasn't given me the correct answer - I have been told twice to untar it, even though that doesn't work...

tar pzxvf (file)?

or..

gunzip <file> (or gzip -d <file> same thing)

then

tar xvf <file>

the first is a shortcut - does both untar and ungzip.

None of that works - it can't just be un-gzipped, since it stores the files in strange locations, so that one of the CPanel scripts can extract it and create the account again.
