Downloading Zips, Themes, Plugins, Scripts Directly To Your Web Host

by 0 comments

Often we find a very cool script on the internet and are thrown off by having to first download it to your computer then extract it then upload it file by file. It's all a waste when you can download files directly to your server with the 500MBps connection your server has AND unzip right on the server.

For those of you who have SSH access to your server, type this in the command line to download the files:

Replace the wordpress download URL with whatever download URL you want. Then.

If the file is a zip file.

if the file is a [something].tar.gz:

tar -zxvf [something.tar.gz]
if the file is a [something].gz:
gunzip [something].gz
If you don't have SSH Access, use the file attached to this thread. Rename it to PHP and use it to download and extract .tar.gz, .gz, .zip files. The file should be chmoded to 777.

Important: DO NOT LINK TO THIS FILE or give the URL to anyone. Giving anyone else access to this script is a MAJOR security threat. Change the name of the script to some obscure unreadable name. Delete it every time after using it.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.

    I read recently that as of late August, Google has removed the 3 adsense units per page limit and replaced it with a policy that has no specific limit but which requires that the amount of ads not exceed the amount of content. Is anyone familiar with this and can anyone suggest how best to implement this.
