    Can I delete these /tmp files???


    Recently, I played around with the backup/restore solution that Cobalt
    has pre-installed..... I know it is CRAP, but I just wanted to see what
    would happen if I backed up and tried to restore a site....then I am
    fully aware of what I would be dealing with if a client ever did this
    on their own.....

    I backed up a site that is about 2 MB in total size......then tried to
    restore it. So anyway, the backup process worked fine......but when I
    tried to restore, it went on and on forever.....

    When the restore didn't work, I figured okay.....I played, now I am
    done. Wrong.....

    The /home/tmp folder has three files in it now that are HUGE in size!!!

    Can I delete them without any worries???

    The files are:

    restore-files-bad.11777 (1892486939)
    restore-files-bad.7782 (1943977421)
    _site_20021023-0949.raq (7873180)

    Any insight is appreciated...

    Anything in tmp can be removed. Just remember if you have MySQL setup and it stores the mysql.sock file in there you'll need to restart MySQL if u removed it, But everything in that directory is okay to delete.

    Thanks! Just wanted to double check before I went and started deleting files.....

    I figured I could, but my thoughts have come back to bit me in the a$$ in the future because of stuff I deleted....
