Last Updated: May 18, 2018

After you have unloaded the website program to the instance, you need to extract the compressed package.

Note the following when you extract the package:

  • The package name cannot contain Chinese characters.

  • The compressed package must be a ZIP or TAR file.

  • The package must be extracted into the root directory, namely, the hotdocs directory.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Web Hosting console.

  2. On the Host List page, locate the target instance.

  3. Click Manage to open the Instance Details page.

  4. In the left-side navigation pane, select File Management > File Extraction.

    Extract

  5. Click Browse on the right side of the Extract File box. A dialog box appears.

  6. In the dialog box, select the package to be extracted, and click OK.

  7. Click Browse on the right side of the Directory for extraction box. A dialog box appears.

  8. In the dialog box, click Root Directory, and click OK.

  9. On the File Extraction page, click OK.

    Note: Log on to the FTP site to check the files of website program. If the files of the website program are under hotdocs directory, the extraction is correct. If the files of the website program are under a subdirectory of htdocs, transfer the files to htdocs, otherwise, an error may occur afterwards.
