    I have decided to not use regular FTP (on port 21) due to its lack of security. I went into the WHM FTP Server selection interface and selected DISABLED. Tested SFTP which still works.

    Now I am getting cron alerts every 10 minutes.

    Title of the email is:
    Cron <root@servername> /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php /usr/share/ilabs_antimalware/cron/cronjobs.php

    Body of the email is:
    grep: /etc/pure-ftpd.conf: No such file or directory

    I checked crontab but this line is not contained within it.

    crontab output:
    0 6 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/exim_tidydb > /dev/null 2>&1
    30 5 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/optimize_eximstats > /dev/null 2>&1

    Any idea how to disable this annoying alert!

    Hi,

    The entry could be in one of the crontabs in /etc such as /etc/cron.d or /etc/crontab. /var/log/cron might also help you determine where it is.
