Extract missing from File Manager

Extract is mandatory, I can't even use virtualmin without an extract option.

SSH workaround is not sufficient.

What do you mean, "missing"? It has an extract function in the right click menu. (i.e. hover over the archive, and right-click. The "Extract" option is at the bottom.

Extract feature is not missing. It doesn't show up, because you don't have dependencies installed on your server. Make sure to install unzip at least.

In case you have further questions, please let me know.

Hi, I'm having the same issue, but i have installed zip and unzip on my server.

I can compress files but cannot extract.

Hi Nikkio,

I can't find extract option same as you, but I don't have Apache web server but have Nginx (plus php) installed.

I do believe it is the main reason for that, but also didn't find and solution yet
