    Default Cleaning up the Zimbra area

    I've gone through several upgrades now and I've noticed that there are folders with multiple versions of the same component accumulating in the Zimbra folder. For instance, I have:

    amavisd
    amavisd-new-2.4.3
    amavisd-new-2.5.2

    clamav
    clamav-0.88.5
    clamav-0.88.7
    clamav-0.90.2
    clamav-0.91.2

    It appears that amavisd points to amavisd-new-2.5.2 and clamav points to clamav-0.91.2. Can I safely delete the older version folders?

    Others with multiple folders are cyrus-sasl*, java/jdk*, mysql*, snmp/net_snmp*, openldap*, perdition*, and sleepycat*.

    The backup time and space requirements have grown significantly over the last couple of upgrades so I'm trying to reclaim space and reduce the backup load. Thanks in advance for advice and help.

    Thanks mmorse. Ironically I did several searches for this before posting and somehow never came across that thread. Sorry for the re-post of the question.

    Ok those links were helpful but I guess I'd like a little more hand holding if possible Here's what I've got so far from the links:

    clamav-x.xx.x
    Ok to delete all but the one that "clamav" is linked to.

    config.#####
    Ok to delete all numbered config files; don't delete config.save (I didn't have this file, however, fwiw)

    amavisd-new-x.x.x
    jdkx.x.x_xx

    Do not touch.

    Since some things with multiple versions are OK to delete and others not, I would feel better if someone explicitly commented on the following components as to whether it's OK to delete all but the most recent version:

    cyrus-sasl (cyrus-sasl-2.1.21.ZIMBRA; cyrus-sasl-2.1.22.3)
    mysql (mysql-standard-5.0.33-pc-linux-gnu-i686-glibc23; mysql-standard-5.0.45-pc-linux-gnu-i686-glibc23)
    snmp (net-snmp-5.4; net-snmp-5.4.1)
    openldap (openldap-2.3.34; openldap-2.3.39.5z)
    perdition (perdition-1.17; perdition-1.17.1; perdition-1.17.1.1z)
    sleepycat (sleepycat-4.2.52.4; sleepycat-4.2.52.6)

    Lastly, in the log folder there are zimbrastats.csv.####-##-## files dating back to my initial installation nearly a year ago. Is there any reason to keep these or are they safe to delete?

    Thanks.

    In lieu of a response to this I've backed the directories up and removed older version components from the zimbra directory. I've also purged (after backing up) the stats.csv files. I'll report back if anything fails...
