How do I extract a password protected .7z file?
Can someone tell me how can I extract a password protected .7z file in Ubuntu server?
(I know the password, I just need a program to do so and an example of how to use said program…)
there is a rarcrack to do this task. It can handle .rar, .zip and .7z files. Check out this article:
Hope this will help
p7zip-full on the server first and then run this to extract a z7 archive called
test.7z, encrypted with the password
7z x test.7z -ppassword
As JanC adds below, you can omit the whole
-ppassword flag and it will just ask you for the password on extraction:
