    My disk usage keeps growing even though I'm not adding more files. Other than undelivered email, my guess is that this is due to temp files such as those generated by the stats and logging features within cPanel. (Who needs three different stat trackers anyway).

    tmp/analog 24.72 Meg
    tmp/webalizer 4.88 Meg
    tmp/webalizerftp 0.98 Meg

    My site is relatively small and the three temp files above account for Over 30 megs of wasted space -- more than half of my site's total disk usage!

    Any way to stop these or limit their growth? Is there any harm done if I just delete these folders in the file manager? Will the folders recreate themselves and start again (which is okay if I can prune the size every now and then). What can be done to keep a handle on this automatic growth?
