Do you have remote access like SSH?

If you do, then you can ssh in and just run 'ssh filename.zip' or if it is a tarred gzip file you can run 'tar xvzf filename.tar.gz'

If you don't have ssh access you will need to unzip on your local computer with a program like WinZip or WinRar. I personally prefer WinRar.

I think you mean "unzip filename.zip"

Some instructions and examples are here: http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl1_unzip.htm

Duh, my brain just wasn't functioning right. Yes, you are correct 'unzip filename.zip'

It depends highly on the privileges you have and the control panel you use.
If you have SSH access privilege, then unzip filename.zip is your choice.
If you do not have SSH access, and your hosting provider uses cpanel, then you can use the "extract" function (top-right corner) to unzip your files.

For filename.tar.gz you can also use "gunzip filename.tar.gz".

And redirecting out you can do "zcat filename.tar.gz | PROGRAM"

you can unzip using PHP if PHP has been compiled with the zip extension or if the server has the PECL extension installed.

http://uk2.php.net/zip

If you are not sure whether they are installed you could have a look at the output of the phpinfo() function.

if your host runs cpanel (and maybe other controls panels have it as well), you can use the File Manager to extract files on the server (you can also use it to upload the compressed file).

Click the file name (not the icon) to select the file, then click on Extract.

Hope this helps.
