    in MYSQL.err log, I'm seeing a large number of these errors.

    [ERROR] Invalid (old?) table or database name '.ssh'

    in PHPMyadmin, I can see at the top of my database lists a database named #MYSql50#.ssh
    Under WHM?Manage databases, I can't see it.

    1. should it be there
    2. could this be the cause of the errors
    3. how would I remove it, if it's not menat to be there ?

    in var/lib/mysql, i see an empty folder named .ssh.
    I assume this is the issue.

    is it safe to delete this ?

    Hello,

    Yes, you can remove that directory, as it's not a standard directory within /var/lib/mysql. The ".ssh" directory generally exists in a user's home directory and contains SSH data (keys, authorized hosts).

    Thank you.
