    As said above, yes you can. If you don't understand it well, you might want to go through SSH.

    Code (Text):

    tar -zxvf "filename"
     
    that is the command.

    you can unzip it from file manager you have decompress/unzip option at top. if you have ssh access following are commands
    for zip try unzip , tar.bz , bz2, tar jxvf file.tar.bz2, and for tar.gz use tar zxvf file.tar.gz

    Of course you an upload file in cpanel without unzipping the file, nothing to worry about it, its fine.

    This feature is very useful, when you need to upload a script, that have 1000+ files. Uploading via FTP, could take hours.

    The file manager will do it in few minutes...

    You can also delete files and folder with cPanel file manager, or change files permissions.

    The File Manager from cPanel offers great features for managing files. Including archiving, unzip-ing, uploading/downloading files, etc.

    I'm new also extract now will unzip tar.gz extentions. You would need to do this on your computer that you have your files saved to obviously & not in cPanel. can you telnet into your acct if so, you should be able to unzip that way You can use the same cPanel file manager and click on your file. Once clicked you'll be presented with certain actions you can perform on that file or folder. These actions include, Copying/Moving/Deleting/Renaming & UNZIPPING. Simply click on Unzip and it'll decompress your file into the containing directory. Be a little careful here, as it might flood your containing folder with the files in the zip - if they're not packed neatly into separate folders.

    Thanks.
