Greetings, I need to get into my directory under WWW_pages and unzip a file. I have not used a terminal in a long time so I am very rusty. I am unzipping a wordpress folder made with the latest version. I need to instal the sql file also. All help greatly appreciated.

To navigate to your web directory and unzip a file do the following:

1. log in to shell (open up your shell program [i use putty] and then connect to sh.sonic.net, log in with your Sonic username / password)
2. change directories to your web directory (cd /home/www_pages/USERNAME)
3. change to the directory containing the zip file
4. run the unzip command (unzip FILENAME.zip)
