    We have one cpanel server that is getting old, and there isn't enough space on /usr to upgrade. I've noticed that in /usr/local/cpanel/bin there are several scripts that appear to be duplicates with -cpanelsync appended to the name of the file. These files take up 820MB which is a lot of space on this machine. There are 49 of these files in all.

    Is it safe to delete these apparent duplicates?

    Here is a partial list of those files:

    Code:
    -rwx------  1 root     root     12390366 Jul  8 22:34 update_quota_cache*
    -rwx------  1 root     root     12390760 Jul  1 05:00 update_quota_cache-cpanelsync*
    -rwxr-xr-x  1 root     root        11503 Feb  9  2015 update-roundcube*

    -rwxr-xr-x  1 root     root         8499 May 27 11:01 update-squirrelmail*

    Hello :)

    It's possible a previous cPanel update failed during the synchronization process and those files were leftover. You can safely remove those files (ending in -cpanelsync) from your system.

    Thank you.

    Thank you so much! We are almost ready to move to a new clean server, but this has saved us from running out of space while we finalize the move.
