How to Unzip WordpressUncompressing Wordpress
Once you have downloaded the WordPress bundle as a .zip file, use the built-in unzip feature on Windows or Mac OS X to open the file cabinet and unzip the file for upload to your web site. Go to the WordPress website and click on the "Download" button at the top right of the home page.
Press the "Download WordPress" icon at the top right of the Downloads page. Please await the zip file to be downloaded to your standard zip file. If you prefer, store the Library in a different location than your Downloads location by right-clicking, choosing Store Link As, and then choosing a location from the drop-down list.
Continue with step 3 if you have a Windows computer, or go to Step 4 if you have a Mac. Navigate to the directory where you stored the.zip file and double-click the file in Windows. When the Extract All File window opens, click and type a name for the file or click Browse to choose the directory and storage place where you want to save the WordPress file.
Decompressor decompresses and saves the file. Under Mac OS X, double-click the.zip file. It decompresses all content directly into a seperate directory where you stored the source file. Easily share your non-compressed data via an FTP server or your host company's own FTP server console.
Please make sure that you are downloading the.zip archival WordPress file and not another archived zip file. The opening of other kinds of zipped file cabinets will require extra softwares and these file cabinets are not more dependable than .zip file cabinets. "About unpacking Wordpress."
