    Good day,

    I am having problems manually extracting domains from Plesk 9.5 backup that was FTPed onto my back up server. I have followed the article http://kb.parallels.com/en/1757 using method 2. The problem is here:
    # zcat DUMP_FILE.gz > DUMP_FILE

    My backup file CP_1204131759.tar is a tar archive and zcat does not work with it. So I proceed to cat CP_1204131759.tar > CP_1204131759.

    But when I try # cat CP_1204131759 | munpack
    I get an error that munpack did not find anything to read from standard input.

    I went on to extract the tarfile and got a lot of files similar to this:
    CP_sapp-distrib.7686-0_1204131759.tgz CP_sapp-distrib.7686-35_1204131759.tgz CP_sapp-distrib.7686-6_1204131759.tgz

    How best can I extract the httpdocs of a domain from this serverwide Plesk backup?
