I'm new, and I've worked with MySQL and Perl for awhile now. I was pretty sure I could get livejournal working on my server.
However, I've come across a very annoying problem, I have no clue how to download the files I need. I know what a tarball is (sort of), I've found plenty of information on THAT, but I have no idea how to untar a tarball.
Can someone please help me with this?
I'm clueless about the CVS repository too, but that option is apparently an unstable one.
My server has all the right Perl modules and has Apache and uses MySQL and has everything else and then some, so there's no problem there.
I'm still stuck on this though, it's driving me crazy. I know it's simple to untar something, it must be... and I'm just not seeing the answer here.
