    So it's coming from localhost - what exactly is calling this and why isn't it there?

    Code:
    [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: /usr/local/apache/htdocs/pinger
    
    Google is only showing others with this same error but nothing useful as far as a description.

    mod-security uses pingers but not like that

    Hello :)

    I am not aware of any specific applications that call to that file location. Are you running any third-party applications on this server?

    Feel free to submit a ticket to our support staff if you would like us to take a closer look:

    Ah okay - my apologies then, that was a bit lazy on my part to assume it was part of cpanel.

    I will have to dig around to see.

    I can spot the pattern in the error log so it's just a matter of tracking down what cron is doing this.

    ADDED: okay that took quite a bit of detective work because it did not exist in any physical files and could not be grepped

    so for the next person to come across this problem - it's from your WordPress installs trying to do an RPC pingback to one of the default domains that no longer exists so it gets bounced back to localhost - go into your options for "writing" and remove rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/ which has expired

    Not a cpanel problem at all, again my apologies.
