Unzip files in my Linux Hosting account
Follow these steps to extract a .tar, .gz, or .zip file after uploading it to your Linux Hosting account.
Note: Other compressed formats may not be supported. To check, see the the cPanel documentation.
- Go to your GoDaddy product page.
- Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
- In the top left-hand corner of the account Dashboard, select File Manager.
- In the cPanel File Manager, navigate to the directory in which the file is stored.
