    help question Removing extra folders from a server for security reason

    Hi,

    Can I remove the next folders / files from live server in order to decrease the security treats:
    docs
    extras
    zc_install
    install.txt

    Since my website isn't intended to support downloadable product can I also remove from the server next folders:
    download
    media
    pub

    I found somewhere that these folders can be removed safely without affecting the functionalities of a zen cart website. I'd like if some of experienced users can confirm this.

    Many thanks,

    You can do this. Remember to turn off downloadable products too - Admin->Configuration->Attribute Settings->Enable Downloads, and set it to False.
