View Full Version : Packaging my skin up

06-02-2007, 01:28 PM
Hi I have finally made my own skin for my directadmin, But When I pack it up as a .tar file with Gzip compression it says:

Error untarring the archive: gzip: stdin: not in gzip format /bin/tar: Child returned status 1 /bin/tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
The skin package did not install properly. Either there were files missing, or their permissions were incorrectly set

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

What command did you use to "pack it up" ? "tar czvf" ?

I used Ultimatezip archiver. Am I doing it completely wrong lol?

Personally, I suggest tar -xzvf file.tar.gz to untar it, but that's just me.

I dont think I quite understand.

If I have the files in a .zip file could I send them to someone to put in a suitable file format so I can upload it through Directadmin?
