    If u can ask ur host tell them too do this http://in2.php.net/rar then rar will work with php

    Once its done u can use codes like

    <?php
    
    $rar_file = rar_open('example.rar') or die("Failed to open Rar archive");
    
    $entry = rar_entry_get($rar_file, 'Dir/file.txt') or die("Failed to find such entry");
    
    $entry->extract('/dir/to'); // create /dir/to/Dir/file.txt
    $entry->extract(false, '/dir/to/new_name.txt'); // create /dir/to/new_name.txt
    
    ?>
    
    Code (markup):

    I think it is not possible to extract the .rar file in c panel. But, if you have ssh access means from there you extract the .rar file.

    If your shared hosting provider won't unrar the file, you can convert it to .tar.gz with 7zip.
    Also its a pretty useful free tool for archives of all kinds.

    If you need to upload or download files from your web hosting, one of the best programs out there is called: FileZilla. You need to login using your FTP details (the IP of your shared server, cPanel username, cPanel password), and it immediately gives you access to your web files. The program displays 2 screens: one of your computer, and one of your web server. This gives you an easy overview and functionality of being able to upload and/or download files.

    You can extract your .rar file inside a map on your computer and upload those files directly to your web server.
