    I have these install directories in /home, alongside standard user homes. Did WHM put them there during upgrades? If so, why not a more standard location like /usr/local/src or something? Weird. Is there any reason to keep them there? Are they useful for future upgrades? I would think new copies would be downloaded at upgrade time anyway... Just wanted to be sure it's safe to remove them.

    bandmin-install/
    cpapachebuild/
    cpzendinstall/
    exim4-install/
    ftpup-install/

    Thanks,
    Scot

    Go on, have a guess
    It's safe to remove them. They're usually mostly empty anyway.
