    when changing servers; what to delete?

    i've changed dedicated servers and i wonder what i should go in and delete on my old server just for security purposes?

    you think my old host will mind if i delete the cpanel directory or whatever?

    just so that there aren't remaing files case my old host is mad i've left their service

    without root you cant delete the cpanel directory.

    Just delete your sites files.
