    Recent Ensim to Cpanel user here.

    After using the migration scripts, I've noticed that many users of the domains have subuser folders and data. I'm seeing:
    which contains folders like:
    public_html (pretty empty, just the old Ensim 'welcome' page stuff which I am not interested in retaining)
    and some have:
    .spamassassin (custom settings from previous server which I am not interested in retaining)

    further, they have a symlink web folder listed as:
    pointing to:

    Is it OK to delete all of these? (both the folders in /home/domainusername/subusers/subusername and the symlinks in /home/domainusername/public_html/ ?) If so, shall I just delete the folders and symlinks from the command line, or is there somewhere within cPanel I ought to execute this from? They don't have 'FTP Accounts' from within cPanel, if that helps. Any other trailing data you can think of that I ought to delete?

    Yes, it's fine to remove that data directly via the command line, assuming you don't need any of the data related to subdomains or addon domain names.

    Thank you.
