7zip is the support file compression and decompression freeware on Linux, but it's not in the default CentOS repo. To be able to install 7zip, we need to use repository RPMforge.

As my knowledge then to install 7zip on your vps, you need to do some simple ways as following

Install repository

Code:
wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.i686.rpm
rpm -ivh rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.i686.rpm
Install 7zip

Code:
yum install p7zip
Unzip file

Code:
7za x [7zfilename]
Compress file

Code:
7za a -mx=9 7zfilename.7z [filename/directory]
Hope it's useful to you :)

Yes it is possible but I would suggest using unzip and zip command which already have on Centos

Also, using Zip and Unzip from SSH is more faster and better than using on web browser from your web hosting control panel. :)
