    Compressing files to a ZIP archive is a great way to upload files quickly to a server. It’ll also save your bandwidth. You can use WinZIP or WinRAR to compress files on your local computer. And after uploading compressed file to the server, you need to use Putty to unzip files because neither FileZilla nor Virtualmin file manager support extracting ZIP files.

    So login to your server with as administrative user with Putty. And then navigate to document root of the domain. Replace admin-user with your username for the domain.

    cd /home/admin-user/public_html

    Now run following command to extract the zip file. Replace myfile with your file name.

    unzip myfile.zip

    You’ll be able to see the status on the Putty screen.
