The default directories in your newly created domain or subdomain space, and what to do with them?

Here are some of the directories that are automatically created:

  • The logs directory
    It contains directories for each site with transfer logs enabled. Each such directory contains its own set of log files that are required to write and read the data about all visits to your sites. Deleting the Logs directory will cause the loss of the web statistics accumulated over the course of your site’s operation.
  • The virtual FTP directory
    This directory is created when you enable Virtual FTP Server and can be accessed by virtual FTP users to list and download its content. Deleting Virtual FTP directories will cause incorrect operation of Virtual FTP. However, you may harmlessly delete individual files in these directories.
  • The ssl.conf directory
    This directory stores SSL pairs for all encrypted sites. Deleting the ssl.conf directory will result in incorrect SSL operation.
  • The domain directory
    Each of your domains and subdomains are located in their own directories. They are named the same as your site’s domain name. If you have more than one site, you will have several such directories. These are the directories where you will upload your .html files or any other files that you want to make accessible from the Internet.
    WARNING: Deleting any domain directory will delete your site and all content. Use extreme caution.

  • The Webalizer or Modlogan directories
    Each of these directories is created by default or when the stat programs Webalizer and Modlogan are enabled from your control panel. Deleting these directories will disable your statistic programs and remove any accumulated site statistics.
  • The cp directory
    This folder contains many of the help and example files used as you navigate our control panel. These files are not essential and can be deleted.
  • The cgi-bin directory
    This is the default location that you place any CGI or Perl applications. You can modify which files and folders can be used.
  • The images directory
    The images folder is the location where the default index page images are placed. Deleting any of the files/folders in your web space can affect the performance of your website.
