In /usr/bin I have some very old .relink files:

Code:
[email protected] [/usr/bin]# ls -la | grep relink
-rwsr-xr-x   1 root root        57536 Jul 30  2014 crontab.relink.1440525782*
-rwsr-xr-x   1 root root        57544 Jul 27  2015 crontab.relink.1453949030*
-rwsr-xr-x   1 root root        27832 Jun 10  2014 passwd.relink.1440525782*
[email protected] [/usr/bin]#
As you can see these are from 2014/2015...are these safe to delete, or is there a reason why they are still in the system?

Hello :)

I advise against deleting these files because they ensure certain functions are linked to the correct location. For instance, if you remove the crontab.relink files, you may receive an error message such as this when attempting to use the "crontab" command:

Code:
Cpanel::Wrap::send_cpwrapd_request failed to fetch crontab: root is not permitted to call cpwrapd
Thank you.
