That Huge .cpan Folder in /Home
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

This worked for a VPS using virtuozzo and could recover about 1 G in space.
