Removing Folders from the Home Directory

For web developers and administrators, the relocation and removal of files/folders is a task that likely occurs on a daily basis and can also be the cause of multiple website issues. The following list is intended to dictate the default folders inside of the home directory that should not be altered. The removal, misplacement or relocation of these files and folders can result in multiple issues, including but not limited to 404 errors, disruption of email or a misbehaving control panel.

When managing files on the server, it is always recommended that you create a full directory backup prior and save it to your computer.
