How to extract archive files using the File Manager?

This option is valid for paid customers only, because the use of archive files is restricted on the free hosting servers due to security reasons.

To extract an archive file using the Hosting Control Panel -> File Manager section, select the archive you want to extract and click on the “Extract” button from the main window or right-click on the file and select “Extract here”. This will extract the archive in the current working directory.

Please note, that for larger files the process may take some time and the extraction will continue working in the background, even if you close your browser or if the page times out in your browser. For this reason before submitting another extraction, please check if the first one is over because otherwise, you will simply add the second extraction request to the extraction queue on the server.
