    Reupload the .tar.gz file to your server using ftp BINARY mode.

    The bettym.pl documentation now says to upload the .tar.gz file in ftp BINARY mode (previously it didn't say what mode to use). Thanks for pointing that out

    I assumed that linux/unix webmasters understood that .tar.gz is a binary file (just like a .zip file) and thus would upload it in binary mode.
