Installing .tgz files.


Hi, I want to install the zend framework on my Linux machine.

I have downloaded a file with an extension ".tgz" (ZendFramework-2.0.2.tgz)

How do I install this file? With an "rpm" command?

It is an archive format (like .zip in windows) so you need to extract it and then look for a README or INSTALL file inside. Or read the instructions on the zend website.

If you get a source distribution usually will follow the "configure;make;make install" steps, but depends on the program (I never installed ZendFramework).

But if you don't fully understand how to build/install from source code, I recommend you to install using a package manager (as rpm).

Hi all,

Thanks so much for your response.

But I don't know how to extract this file. I don't know how to use the rpm command to extract this file.

All I know how to do on Linux is use firefox, and the "yum install" command.

Do you know how I could use the rpm command to extract this file?

If you're having issues extracting a .tgz file, then you will most likely face much more difficult issues installing and configuring something like Zend Framework. It's like attempting to rebuild an automobile engine when you're having difficulty figuring out how to open the hood. As mentioned, you should probably try to find a Zend Framework package that was build for your distribution (Red Hat/CentOS?) and install that package instead of working with the .tgz file.

Fedora, CentOS 6, RHEL6 : # yum install php-ZendFramework*

CentOS 5, RHEL 5 : The same. "ZendFramework" is in the remi.repo
