2.3. Unpacking the Software

Now that you have the tar gzipped package on your local machine, you can unpack it.

First copy the package to a desirable directory, for example /usr/local. Next use the following command:

tar xvzf openldap-2.1.3.tgz 

You can use this command too, as well:

gunzip openldap-2.1.3.tgz | tar xvf -
