My website is hosted by Hostgator. I have a few large files on the remote server which I want to split into small pieces. I am wondering if there is any way to split it on the remote server? Or I have to download it to my PC and split it locally?

The "compress" available in cpanel does not compress a file into multiple parts.

Thanks.

Yes, split it locally & replace it on the server. You should already have it on your PC or somewhere as a backup.

No, I do not have a backup on my PC. The large files are downloaded directly to the remote server. I want to split them into smaller pieces and post them in my blog.

I hope there is a way to split files on the remote server.

Any hints?

If the server is running SSHD, then maybe you can do it. You should really think about a backup.
