I had received an archive in the .jpa format and I would need to extract jpa to get some files from it.
I know that it is Joomla related, but I am not sure how can I open it and get what I need from it.
Can you assist me in this with a software that will open .jpa extensions?
Any suggestion would be helpful.
How can I extract jpa to get some files from it
JPA format is created as an alternative to ZIP, and is suitable for PHP scripts. It doesn’t store a checksum for every file as does ZIP and thus reduces the time for archiving. It would be a better option to backup your files using JPA format.
There are two ways to extract files from JPA:
Using Kick-start and Akeeba extract Wizard
Proceed as follows:
Upload .jpa archive in public_html through FTP client.
Download Akeeba Kick-start script
Upload Kick-start Zip archive in the same folder containing .jpa archive and extract the contents.
Now you need Kickstart php script.
Select file (which needs to restore) > Click “Write to File Directly” > Press Start.
After the restoration is complete, you will get a window with button “Run the Installer”, press it and click Next.
As the installation is completed, you can access your Joomla front and back ends.
