    The eximstats MySQL database is taking up around 1 GB of space. If I just select EMPTY in phpMyAdmin for all the tables, will it be OK or will it screw somethign up?

    Sure, we do it all the time. The only person(s) that has access to the relay stats are the person(s) whom have access to your WHM for view relay stats... you may also wish to OPTIMIZE the eximstats database periodically too.

    Thanks for the response. Do you know of anything else that can be done to free up some space? (besides clearing the apache domlogs and exim logs)

    I'm sure this. If you do a search on this forum for freeing up disc space, disc quotas,..etc. you'll probably find a great deal of tips :)

    But remember to always backup before removing folder and/or files if your not sure what or how their used!

    I know it's OK to delete Apache core files, but do you or anyone else know if it's OK to delete any type of .core file?

    327M /root/perl.core

    that file would be ok to remove, on most RH/Linux system, 7,8 and 9 the only 'core' you don't want to remove are, that I'm aware of are:
    Code:
    /proc/sys/net/core
    /usr/src/linux-<kernel-version-number>/net/core
