I don't usually have issues like this, but when I try to unpack the tgz file I just bought this is what I get:

If I do it on my computer it tells me:
"Unable to unarchive "cscart_v1.3.4-sp2.tgz" into "CS-Cart" (error 2 - No such file or directory).

It is sitting in the CS-Cart directory when I do this.

When I upload the tgz file to the server and put it in the cart folder I want it to work in - and then do the tar command on the server. When I do that I get this error:

tar -xzvf cscart_v1.3.4-sp2.tgz
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

So, needless to say, I am not getting very far with this installation.

I am on a Mac by the way...so don't give me Windows based responses (like using WinZip). I tried Stuffit to unpack the file on my computer, which has always been successful in the past with .tgz files.

I had no trouble expanding the tgz on the server.

Have you tried Untar available at:

It was a simple issue of the file not downloading all the way. It appeared to be a complete download, because the size was pretty much the same as the file area indicated it would be.
