    Hi

    Just wanted to know if it would be ok to delete a scripts folder on the main root directory. It looks like some kind of backup that was created (not by me) as it has a date in the folder name. Trying to optimize space and do some maintenance. Not sure if the folder was created there due to some cPanel upgrade and thought I would ask before deleting it.

    Do you mean the one with /scripts & /scripts.xxxx ? Yes, you can delete /scripts.xxxxx. This is created after cPanel updates are performed on the server.

    That folder is only created when cPanel updates from 11.28 to 11.30, since we moved the scripts directory to /usr/local/cpanel/scripts location. For the move, we backed up the old /scripts directory, then created a symlink from /scripts to /usr/local/cpanel/scripts
