    I have a second /tmp directory located at /home/myacct/tmp. It has 4G of data in it, but most of it seems to be log files of something.

    I don't use Urchin, Webalizer, or any other stats software on the server (I just use Google Analytics). I DID use them, but not now. Does this directory serve any other purpose, or can it be deleted?

    As well as I know, You better emptying it not entirely delete.

    I guess you could also delete it but I don't know what will be the result of doing that.
