    I’m trying to unzip the tar.gz file with the followng command, as specified in the docs:

    gunzip -c wordpress-1[1][1].5.1.2.tar.gz | tar -xf -.

    And it give me the following error:
    gunzip: wordpress-1[1][1].5.1.2.tar.gz: not in gzip format
    tar: -.: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    What gives?

  • grab the zip file, unpack to your local drive and upload the files.

    have you redownloaded the tar file?

    Try doing tar -xvzf wordpress-1.5.1.2.tar.gz

    Or, you can just remove the [1][1] from that command and try again, something like this:

    gunzip -c wordprses-1.5.1.2.tar.gz | tar -xf –
