    Default Cleaning up /opt/zimbra orphaned files

    My Zimbra installation started at v4 and has had every upgrade applied up to the latest 5.08

    Would it be possible to include a clean up script in the next release?

    For example there is still a folder /opt/zimbra/tomcat but this was changed to jetty at v5

    And is amavisav or clamav used, for example.

    I'm sure someone knows which files are no longer required.

    There is an RFE somewhere on what we could consider removing on upgrade, but till then:
    Run a ls -la, generally the stuff that's symlinked will point to the current versions.
    If somethings got 3+ versions I save just the 2 most recent.
    When in doubt, error on the side of caution or make a backup before removing.

    You can delete those config.##### Not a whole lot of room freed up on it, but I guess you're just trying to tidy up.
    If you're cleaning out your /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig/ folder however be a little more careful. Subfolders for old configs is one thing, but I wouldn't suggest removing your current config.save, etc

    Do NOT remove the jdk1.5.x_x folder as we're still using it in 5.0.8
