    Can i delete the public_ftp folder from all accounts??

    I guess it's used for anonymous ftp - which i don't allow. Prefer to delete folders not being used. Can I stop it being created??

    Also i have one customer with no mail. Can i delete the mail folder from this account??

    Without busting cPanel that is....

    If you disable anon ftp in main proftpd or pureftpd it will force no anon for ALL.. then you wont have to worry about public_ftp directories.. nothing would be accessible to thast if main ftp wont allow anon.

    Some of my customers try to put files in there. I find that the less folders i have the more likely they are to upload html files to the correct place. :rolleyes:

    So it would be nice to just delete the unused folders. They probably wouldn't upload to "mail" or "tmp" - at least I hope not....
