Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've uploaded it to /usr/local and used ./ with ssh. I get the following:

- installing /usr/local/man/man1/7z.1
- installing /usr/local/man/man1/7za.1
- installing /usr/local/man/man1/7zr.1
- installing /usr/local/share/doc/p7zip/README
- installing /usr/local/share/doc/p7zip/ChangeLog
- installing HTML help in /usr/local/share/doc/p7zip/DOCS

This is what I should be getting right?

However, when trying to use 7za, it's constantly telling me 'command not found'.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Some else I also have to do?

You question isn't about programming, it's about using somebody else's program. Ask on SuperUser. – Paul Tomblin Oct 6 '12 at 21:43
It's about installing applications on a server with SSH, I think that counts enough to be here. – Noah Oct 6 '12 at 22:45
How is that programming? – Paul Tomblin Oct 6 '12 at 22:50
