Hi,

Can anyone guide me how to Install 7zip on Centos 6 and 7x version?
And after installed, how to compress and unzip files on my VPS using 7zip?
what are the advantages of 7zip over normal zip and unzip on my vps?

Thanks

Add RPMForge repository:
Code:
wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
Install 7z
Code:
yum install p7zip
Extract file
Code:
7za x [filename]
Compress file
Code:
7za a -mx=9 filename.7z [filename/directory]
7z file format is the only advantage the compression in 7z format is much better than that of the original ZIP format.
