Delete files in joomla

  • Answered
Will deletion of content inside the following directories in cpanel, affect's the site's functionality? Joomla! 1.5
public_html >> cache folder
Is there anyway to locate unused files and folders, to decrease the disk space...

Thank you in Advance

Thank you for your question on deleting files in Joomla. Deleting cache files will not break the site, as it contains HTML copies of the php file output. It is designed to make your site load faster and place less stress on the server, however you can remove them without disturbing the function of the site. Be sure you are only deleting the cache files, however. You may want to test first by simply renaming that folder and visiting the site. If all goes well, then you can delete it.

I do not know of any way to identify files that are not being used, unfortunately.

Kindest Regards,
