How can I extract jpa to get some files from it

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

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.

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.
