So I've transferred over my cpanel backup from hostgator to my new dreamhost shared account but I am having a problem unzipping it.
It's called hbackup.tar.gz
I manage to log into my Mac OSX terminal just fine and I get the Welcome to russell.dreamhost.com writing but when I run the following:
tar -zxvf hbackup.tar.gz the connection to russell.dreamhost.com closes automatically.
Am I doing something wrong or am I not allowed to perform these commands on a shared server?
