    Default [SOLVED] Cleaning up installation folder, delete old files

    In my /opt/zimbra, and I'm sure in everyone elses, there seems to be 'clutter'. For instance, I have a handful of files config.11535, config.13341, config.15030 etc, are they all needed or can I safely delete all but the most recent?

    then there's multiple folders for the same thing clamav is linked to clamav-0.90.2 but I also have folders for clamav-0.88.4 and 88.5 and 88.7! Are these safe to nuke also?

    I've multiple jdk1 folders, and jetty folders, and amavisd-new folders!

    Then there's openldap-data, and openldap-data.prev and openldap-data.prev.25731 and openldap-data.prev.5832 and openldap-replica!

    I know none of this is taking up a lot of space, but every little counts and the extra files are just noise that I'd rather delete.

    I'm sure it's safe, but I'd appreciate it if someone shouts "stop" before I mess everything up

    Yes, you can remove everything but config.save.

    Yes, you can remove everything bust the most recent and clamav.

    Better leave those. Not sure why, just good idea to.

    These are LDAP backups from installations. You may wish to archive them incase something ever happens.
