Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to clean up files that I'm no longer using...this is my first server job, so I'm a noob. I think I installed a lot of packages that I don't need too...what's the best way to go about cleaning up my system before I begin securing it?
