    You can do it from cpanel file manager
    Click on file and at top right hand corner there will be an option to extract

    You can also do it from a SSH "shell" connection ... just type "man tar" for the commands to do so, or Google "tar linux" for several sites showing the commands.

    if you have a file name ending in gz(gzipped tar), then
    Code:
    tar -zxvf <tar file name>
    if you have a file name ending in bz2(bzipped tar), then
    Code:
    tar -jxvf <tar file name>
