I had a bit of trouble setting up my WinRAR on the VPS because of a glibc error (it not being one of the latest) and I wasn't going to update it just because of the hassle.

Here's a tutorial on how to install it on your CentOS VPS.
Alternatively, you can download a .sh file that will automatically install winrar for you by just clicking this link. (or if you're on your vps, use wget https://dl.dropbox.c...13228/winrar.sh and then type sh ./winrar.sh )

First, we'll have to download an older version of Winrar, I like to add the -O filename so that it is a easier to type without the version number.

wget -O rar.tar.gz http://www.rarlab.com/rar/rarlinux-3.7.1.tar.gz

Now, you need to extract the rar file from the .tar.gz file.

gzip -dc rar.tar.gz | tar xf -

or you can do

tar zxvf rar.tar.gz

now you just need to go to the directory

cd rar

now we're going to copy both the files to the bin folder,

cp rar unrar /bin
