Hello!
I'm used to using wget to install cPanel plugins or files to our Centos server. I also have been using Transmit and Cyberduck to upload website's files.

But I have a situation I'm not sure how to proceed.

I bought and have downloaded a cPanel plugin from the site and the instruction says that I need to upload to our server before using a command line they provided to untar it. This suppose to be a plugin for our staff to restore files from their cPanel.

This files is on my desktop now and I have my license. Please how do I upload this plugin to our server? What command will I use with rsync to upload from the desktop to the server? Or how can I do this?

Please help a confused newbie.

Thank you!

Got a link to the page where you got it?

If you're unsure how to install it, if the support's not answering its email or phone, and you're new to all this, my suggestion would be to not bother with it. Do what you need to of course, but you said...

Please help a confused newbie.
Best way for me to help you here might be to say don't use it, whatever it is.

Good luck with this.

Good-evening Astral God and InfoPro!

Thank you so much for the tips and advise. It may be expect-too-much-kind-of-thing but one is left wondering why a typed search with the words "how to upload a cPanel plugin .tar file from desktop to server using Terminal" fails to yield a coherent result. Something like:

ssh into the server
cd to .......
rsync using this command
untar.

Phew! Only if it is that simple, huh! I really need some certain amount of good-luck with this.

"ssh into

Hello InfoPro,

Will this work for uploading and installing a cPanel Plugin to a Centos Server?

scp <filename-2.7.2.tar>[email protected]:<filename-2.7.2.tar>

then this command:

tar -xf filename-2.7.2.tar
cd filename-2.7.2.tar
./rem_install.sh
cd ..
rm -Rfv filename-2.7.2.tar/ filename-2.7.2.tar

Really need to understand.
Thank again!
