    Default [SOLVED] What can safely be deleted?

    I'm in the process of migrating from 4.5.6 NE on CentOS to a new box running 5.04 on Ubuntu 6.06. I've got the old machine all upgraded and working flawlessly on 5.04 and am ready to rsync to the new machine but my /opt/zimbra/ directory is showing signs of all previous versions. is it safe to assume that many of these older version packages can be deleted?
    for example (partial dir list)

    amavisd
    amavisd-new-2.4.1
    amavisd-new-2.4.3
    amavisd-new-2.5.2
    apache-tomcat-5.5.15
    aspell-0.60.5
    backup
    bin
    clamav
    clamav-0.88.4
    clamav-0.88.5
    clamav-0.88.7
    clamav-0.90.2
    clamav-0.92
    clamav-0.92.1


    and what about the 4.X.X directories in the /opt/zimbra/backup directory?

    eliminating some of this would greatly reduce my rsync time. The current contents total over 100 gig.


    As a side note - I've taken good notes and will post my migration process when complete.

    Keep in mind 'clamav/amavisd/etc' in your list above are symlinks to the current versions, so leave those; but you can remove older folder versions and those backups when your ready to part with them: [SOLVED] Old versions of software in /opt/zimbra
