    Hi,

    I'm just curious to know why I keep seeing messages such as this:

    Sep 9 19:41:12 cpanel proftpd[16683]: cpanel.xxxxx.uk (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - FTP login timed out, disconnected
    Sep 9 19:41:12 cpanel proftpd[16683]: cpanel.xxxxx.uk (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session closed.
    Sep 9 19:42:12 cpanel proftpd[16710]: cpanel.xxxxx.uk (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - FTP login timed out, disconnected
    Sep 9 19:42:12 cpanel proftpd[16710]: cpanel.xxxxx.uk (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session closed.

    in my messages log every so often? What process/service causes an FTP login to localhost, and why so regularly?

    Regards,

    Martyn

    It's the chkservd process making sure that the FTP server is up and running :)
