Solution 1Use installer.php: Just use the installer.php like you normally would with the archive.zip file. The process is exactly the same as a .zip file except the installer uses a custom engine to extract the archive.
Solution 2Windows/Mac/Linux Client Tool: Should there ever be a case where the installer.php is having an issue with extracting a ‘.daf’ then you can use the DupArchive extractor tool instead.Below are the steps for running the tool.
Extract all files and perform a manual extract install
- Download the DupArchive Extractor program [Windows] [Mac] [Linux].
- Put .daf file in same directory as DupArchive Extractor.
MAC/LINUX — Be sure the executable has permissions to run. If it does not or you have issues trying to run it set the executable permissions through the file manager or run the command chmod +x DupArchiveExtract from a command line.
- Double click on the DupArchiveExtract executable to proceed with the extract.
MAC — On some systems an unidentified developer dialog box may open. If so click “OK”on the dialog box. Goto Apple > System Preferences, clickSecurity & Privacy and clicked on the Open anyway button.WINDOWS — If a Windows message pops up indicating the app is unrecognized, just click the “More info” link then the Run anyway button.
Extract just the backup installer and perform a standard install
- Perform the same steps as option 1 above to download the DupArchive Extractor but execute “DupArchiveExtract -i” from the commandline instead.
- Grab the installer file just extracted and use it to exact the archive as in Solution 1 above.
