Warning!

Extracted files will overwrite the current files with the same name. Please make sure you have a backup before overwriting your current files.

To extract the contents of the archive file:-

  • Click on the uploaded file.
  • Click on the "Extract File Contents" option on the file manager interface. The files will then be extracted.

Notes

  • Some versions of cPanel will only overwrite the old files if you have downloaded the tar.gz version of the upgrade package.
