This guide will show you how to open Tar files which our panel makes when you zip something up or even for backups.


Step 1: You will need to download a program called 7zip, this is the main program we will be using to extract files from Tars.

WinRar is garbage and wont help you with .tar.gz files.

Step 2: You are going to need to download your tar file from the Panel or if you already have it handy then you can disregard this step.

Step 3: You are going to want to RIGHT click the tar file and select open with 7zip.

Step 4: Once you have opened the first part of the folder, you're going to see another file that is just going to have a random file extension… This is still the tar and now that you have 7zip opened you will be able to just double click it.

Step 5: Once you have opened the file, you will be able to find whatever file you need and simply drag it out of the 7Zip gui.
