How to Unzip file uploaded to Azure Websites

0 votes
hey guys..

I uploaded a zip of my Wordpress site to an Azure website. When I try to FTP in with Winscp it works, but I can't use unzip transfer.zip in the command interface.

How do I unzip my zip file that is now on the server?

One way is to upload the command line version of 7-Zip, it's a standalone .EXE file.

Next, from the Azure Portal, navigate to your Website, click on the console tile and type the unzip command:

7za x thezipfile.zip

An alternative to the portal is to use the console from Kudu. Insert "SCM" between your Website name and azurewebsites.net like this to launch Kudu:

yoursitename.scm.azurewebsites.net

One advantage in using Kudu is that you can upload files directly in the browser just by drag&dropping them.

Hope it helped!
