Let's say I have the archive
website.tar.gz, inside is the following folder structure :
home -mike -www -coolwebsite file1 file2 file3 etc.
When I extract the achive, it recreates exactly the same folder hierarchy (of course). I was hoping there was a way to extract for example only the "coolwebsite" folder to whichever folder I'm in at the moment.
So if I'm on my server in
mydir/ and I extract
website.tar.gz, I want the result to be the
coolwebsite folder, without all the preceding folders. Is that possible ?
