Hello, all

So my organization has a server dedicated for me to develop a brand new instance of an OpenCart website. The problem is that I had previously had to use this server for a different OpenCart project. Now we're thinking that installing a brand new OpenCart instance would probably be easier. I've deleted the databases that the previous OpenCart instance was using and now I'm moving on to the public_html/ folder. Which files/folders should I keep in there?

My research has so far indicated that I should keep the following folders:

.well-known folder
.ftpquota file
.php.ini file (the comments on this file say to keep it)

You could create a new folder, move all the files/folders there so you can be sure if anything is still needed that can be restored. Alternatively you can ask them to re-create your account so you can start empty.
