Help on tar
 
Hi
I have my webserver in which my home pages are soft linked from the /var/www/html to my homedirectories/public_html

How do i make a tar file of the /var/www/html directory so that my contents of soft linked directories are also tarred automatically and how to untar it so that it reaches its proper directories when i untar it.

Thanking you
Sanjib Gupta

Try doing a man tar and search for 'symbolic links'
