Unzip files in cPanel hosting

If you have a compressed file, you can extract it after uploading it to your cPanel hosting account. You can extract .tar, .gz, and .zip files to Linux.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy cPanel hosting account. (Need help opening your account?)
  2. In the upper left corner of the account Dashboard, click File Manager.
    select file manager
  3. In the cPanel File Manager page, navigate to the directory in which the file to be unarchived is stored.

    Note: You can only extract one file at a time and it cannot exceed 20MB.

  4. Select the file and then click Extract in the action bar.
  5. (Optional) Enter the location where you want the files extracted. If you enter a new directory, cPanel creates it - otherwise, the file is extracted to the home directory.
  6. Click Extract File. Your file is extracted in the selected destination directory. All files and directories are now uncompressed.
