That Huge .cpan Folder in /Home

5/5 - (1 vote)

A common question we get from cPanel administrators is whether it’s Ok to remove /home/.cpan since, on many servers, it tends to grow to a size exceeding 1G. The short answer is yes – installation files.

If you find that yours is occupying too much disk space, delete it, and run the following commands:

perl -MCPAN -e shell

cpan> install Bundle::CPAN>
cpan> reload index
cpan> reload cpan
cpan> exit

/scripts/checkperlmodules –full
