I need to upload a ton of stuff from my hard drive to my server. The thing is, I can compress this to 10% of its native size. Although I have unlimited bandwidth, it's the cheapest shared hosting I've found, so we all know bandwidth gets throttled very fast on those unlimited deals.
Is there anyway to decompress it once I get it uploaded to my server?
Server Info:

Operating system linux
Apache version 2.2.23
PHP version 5.3.17
MySQL version 5.5.27-cll

cPanel Pro 1.0 (RC1)
FTP Client: Filezilla 3.6.0.0

Do you have command line access to the server?

You should be able to upload .zip files and expand them from your file manager in cpanel. I believe it only works with zip files though.
