What files must not be deleted





hack_man_
If you are deleting your entire website, so that there is nothing in the public_html folder except the files that are required to make the server work...

What are the files that must be left alone for the server to work?

I think that the folder "cgi-bin" must be left!

inside public_html I believe there is nothing that must stay... I think CGI bin is on the same level as public_html

I think, the /cgi-bin/ folder may be required for some perl scripts (it depends on the server settings), so feel free to delete it If you don't use perl.

Yes, cgi-bin is where you put CGI scripts written in Perl
If the folder is empty, and you won't use Perl scripts, you can delete it.

Whatever you do, DON'T delete the actual public_html folder! It will make your site inaccessible, even if you recreate the folder!
