I recently downloaded a backup for my web host, the extension is .tar.gz. I would like to restore the backup to XAMPP localhost so that I can operate on it locally. How do I extract those files (tried 7-zip, it extracted only 1 file with .tar extension)?
Extracting .tar.gz from with 7-zip is two step process.
- Extract .tar.gz, it will give you .tar file.
- Again extract .tar, it will give you backup files.
Make sure, you are using latest version of 7-zip.
