SSH and Telnet: How do I unpack .tar or .tar.gz files?
Many open source projects are distributed in compressed formats using gz compression.

You can upload .gz files to your web folder and unpack them from an SSH login to your account.

First, login to your account with an SSH program (like Putty).
Second, go to the folder where you uploaded the tar.gz file.

Unpack a tar file like this:
tar xvpf filename.tar (Replace "filename" with the actual filename)

Unpack a tar.gz file like this:
tar xvpfz filename.tar.gz (Replace "filename" with the actual filename)
