    Hi, I have all of these files and folders in my folder, I have no idea what ones are "safe" to delete or not.

    Folders (with files inside):
    • /home/mydomian/.backupcfg
    • /home/mydomian/.cache
    • /home/mydomian/.fontconfig
    • /home/mydomian/.gem
    • /home/mydomian/.cpanel
    • /home/mydomian/.pip
    • /home/mydomian/.cphorde
    • /home/mydomian/.softaculous
    • /home/mydomian/.razor
    • /home/mydomian/.sqmailattach
    • /home/mydomian/.sqmaildata
    • /home/mydomian/bin (contains two files, one called wp and one called wp-cli.phar)
    • /home/mydomian/cache
    • /home/mydomian/mysql_backups
    • /home/mydomian/perl5
    • /home/mydomian/php
    • /home/mydomian/cpanelbranding
    • /home/mydomian/etc/mydomain.com
    • /home/mydomian/tmp
    • /home/mydomian/ruby
    Empty Folders:
    • /home/mydomian/.htpasswds
    • /home/mydomian/.pki
    • /home/mydomian/.trash
    • /home/mydomian/cpanel3-skel
    Files:
    • /home/mydomian/.accesshash
    • /home/mydomian/.gemrc
    • /home/mydomian/.kshrc
    • /home/mydomian/.lastlogin
    • /home/mydomian/.my.cnf
    • /home/mydomian/.mysql_history
    • /home/mydomian/.nanorc
    • /home/mydomian/.pearrc
    • /home/mydomian/.zshrc
    • /home/mydomian/cpbackup-exclude.conf
    • /home/mydomian/cpmove-mydomain.tar.gz
    • /home/mydomian/mydomain (44mb, no actual file extension)
    • /home/mydomian/–/ (0kb file)
    I'd appreciate some help knowing what is safe and what isn't.
