What is these folders in Admin home folder?

Hi,

im running a leagcy  pro 6 with os 6.10.6 and have been  using os 6 for a long time.

(hence no need for comments on support and stuff..  )  Smiley Happy

 

My question is:

What is this for folders in my admin home folder?

I haven't noticed those before.

What are they related to and can i delete them?

 

Running: Plex, mysql, myphpadmin, php7.4 and nzbget.

All without any open direct ports towards internet.

 

best regards,

// Hans

Re: What is these folders in Admin home folder?

It's not that you have installed something there - much more (specifically Python) and many more applications are using the U**x home folders for storing stuff, run time data, and and and ... 

 

Another example is ssh - the home folder is used to store accepted keys for example, by user. The location of the home folder is typically referred in Linux (or more global U**x-like OS) as ~/ , the location is defined in passwd (like /etc/passwd  or in a enterprise directory (AD, LDAP, ...). If you have some basic Windows or Mess-DOS insight, you might remember autoexec.bat ... each shell does also have it's specific counterpart for it's "logon" script in the every same home folder.

It's not OS 6 related, so Netgear is out of the game.

 

The admin folder does parental serve as the home folder for thre admin acount, this is where e.g. the Python virtual environment is stored.

 

Delete? Well, this will kill any or just many App making use e.g. of Python.

/usr/local/lib/python3.7/dist-packages
