In the first step, you need to know which CentOS version you are using to choosing right commands and installing it. After that you must add the rar/unrar yum repository information

Here I am using CentOS 6 64 Bit, if you are using same Centos version, running the following commands

Code:
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
The output should be

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

The output should be

Install rar/unrar
Type the following command to install Rar/Unrar

Code:
yum install rar unrar
The output should be

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# yum install rar unrar
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto
Setting up Install Process

Congratulation's! You have successfully installed rar/unrar on your CentOS.

And now, you can use following commands to rar/unrar your files on the VPS.

Code:
# unrar x (file_name).rar*****      extract with full path
# unrar e -kb (file_name).rar*      (Keep broken)
# unrar l (file_name).rar*****      list files inside
# unrar e (file_name).rar*****      dump files excluding folders
# rar a (file_name).rar (file_name) create a archive Rar file
# rar r (file_name).rar*            recover or fix a archive file or files
# rar a -p (file_name).rar          create a archive Rar file with password
In the case, you don't use CentOS 6 64 Bit that you use CentOS 7 64 Bit or CentOS 6 32 Bit, just replacing with these commands

For CentOS 7 64 Bit
Code:
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm
For CentOS 6 32 Bit
Code:
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

Good luck to you!

Instead of using rar/unrar on your VPS, you can use zip and unzip commands to extract your files which is more easier and convenient without installing extra rar/unrar package.
