Deleting Files

Recommended Posts

My site is currently set up on Drupal. Before that I had WordPress. Before that I had pages that I coded.

 

I would like to delete everything, but not my mail accounts, and start over again.

 

Can I just delete everything in the /public_html folder?

 

I will also delete the databases.

 

This will leave my email accounts alone, won't it?

Welcome to the forum, clemrick. :)

 

You can delete everything in public_html except for the directories "cgi-bin" and "images".

 

If you are unsure on what else to delete you can always open a ticket and ask the techs. Link in my signature.

Welcome to the forums clemrick :)

 

As Thomas states, you can delete everything in the public_html folder and your email accounts will remain in tact.

Thanks, I did that.

 

You can delete everything in public_html except for the directories "cgi-bin" and "images".

 

I didn't see those directories.

 

A folder names "sites" and the .htaccess file are the only things that remained.

 

I also tried to delete two other directories from the home directory and they won't go away. One is a backup I created last July and the other is a directory I made for a couple files I wanted to hold on to until I decided to delete or not. Any suggestions on how to get rid of these?

You can also submit a ticket and they will redo your entire account for you. They did this for me and it was like being born again clean and sin free.

If you are having problems deleting anything in your account you can open a ticket with the help desk and they can delete it for you.
