    On an old server I had public_html, now I have both that and homedir after moving the account to a new server.

    homedir seems to replicate all the public_html files.

    What's the deal here?

    Suppose your username is : don

    Your home will be(in normal case) : /home/don/

    Your public access directory will be: /home/don/public_html/

    now; your issue please ..

    Again,

    What is /home/don/homedir

    It has all the files that public_html has.

    you can delete the homedir

    when your host did a backup and restore...it leaves a mess
    you can safly delete that directory

    Forget homedir. All your files should be in public_html directory

    :)
