How to unzip a ZIP file?

All the details you need on how to replace your new metadata-free files.

  1. Once you have downloaded our .zip file, you will find when you open it a folder whose name is the number of the analysis id. You must select this folder.

2.Inside this folder, you can see that two documents appear:

  • One of them is a .txt file with the name “xxxx.metacleanerErrorReport”. If no error occurred during Metacleaner processing, this document normally does not contain any information.
  • The other file you can find is a folder whose name matches the name of the client’s website. THIS IS THE FOLDER that you must unzip. In the example image, the folder called “www.compañí” is shown.

3. The next step is to unzip the aforementioned folder, for this purpose:

  • You must select the “Extract to” button
  • Next, you have to choose the location where you want to place the unzipped folder and click OK. In the example image, the location shown is the Windows Desktop.

4.Once you have unzipped the file, you can see inside it all the files of the client’s website cleaned of leaks and ready to be replaced by the original ones (those that still contain the leaks). In the second part we will see how to do this.

In the following link you can see an explanatory video on how to perform the above steps, in which we explain how to unzip the .zip folder generated by Metacleaner and what kind of files it contains.

How to replace files on the web?

This second part shows how to replace the files on the client’s website, on a WordPress platform, as this is the most common case we will encounter.

There are some other platforms such as: Joomla, Koken, Jekyll…., so from Suments we recommend that this operation is carried out by the person in charge of managing the client’s website, as there is a high risk of leaving the website unavailable if it is done incorrectly.

HERE is a list of how to do it on some platforms:
