    When running the command "tar -zxvf wordpress-1.2.2.tar.gz" via shell to my remote webhost after uploading WP tarball, I got the following error:

    tar: This does not look like a tar archive
    tar: Skipping to next header
    tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

    Un-tar it on your computer. It's not that big of an archive to upload when it's decompressed.

    Thanks. That's what I did. (I just wanted to bring this to someone's attention.)
