.sh


I'm using RedHat 9.0 and am trying to install a program that has .gz.sh How do I go about installing that? I'm not even really sure what .sh is.

.sh is a shell script, try running that like this:

./file.gz.sh
or
sh /path/to/file.gz.sh

Do this as root and then try both of those commands:

chmod +x linuxq3ademo-1.11-6.x86.gz.sh

Set the permissions of the file so you can execute it.
Something like:

chmod u+x ./file.gz.sh

if you are the owner of the file. You can see the permissions bij executing

ls -l ./file.gz.sh
