    Hello :)

    You can use the "unzip" command if you are using SSH to extract the file. EX:

    Code:
    # unzip /home/username/filename.zip
    Remember to access SSH as the account username to ensure the files are not extracted with "root" ownership. You can also extract the file contents using the "File Manager" option in cPanel. Simply click on the file name in File Manager and choose the "Extract" option.

    Thank you.

    Yes, in that case you can use the command I provided while logged in as the "root" user and the ownership will correctly reflect that.

    Thank you.

    using "File Manager" in cPanel does not unzip my file. It just recreates it The script appears to run but the file remains the same size 3.24Gb
    What am I doing that is incorrect. It seems a simple task.:mad:

    Do you see any specific error messages in the cPanel error log when performing this task? Note that with a 3.24G file, you should really extract the file contents via SSH as the account user.

    Thank you.

    I had the same doubt.
    Searching in Google I come back to here.

    I will have to use the unzip command. 1Gb.

    Do you see any specific error messages in the cPanel error log when performing this task? Note that with files as large as 1G, it's better to extract the file contents via SSH.

    Thank you.
