Something that a lot of us are always looking for is how to compress a Linux Directory.

Nothing easer than execute from the command prompt this:

tar -zcvf name-of-the-archive-we-want.tar.gz /path/to/the/folder

This will create the name-of-the-archive-we-want.tar.gz file that can be extracted using this command

tar -zxvf name-of-the-archive-we-want.tar.gz
