    In WHM >> Main >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager, I have configured ftpd such that Enabled and Monitored are unchecked (not ticked).

    However, each time I restart the server, pure-ftpd starts. I have now used chkconfig to ensure that the service is not restarted for future reboots - see Console output below.

    Is this the expected behaviour ? If so, I think the "Service Manager" screen should warn that an additional step is necessary to stop the ftpd service starting when the server is re-booted.

    Our server runs CentOS 5 on an applogic VPS.

    Console output:
    #chkconfig --list pure-ftpd
    pure-ftpd       0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
    #chkconfig pure-ftpd off

    #chkconfig --list pure-ftpd
    pure-ftpd       0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off

    It seems really strange....

    As you've mentioned Steps Performed by you:

    This should take care of pure-ftpd....

    But if it still manages to trouble you, you can try this :
    { This step is even strange then this issue but will work surely }

    From Shell fire this command with root privileges

    With this what we are doing is the not allowing daemon "pure-ftpd " to execute as permission is being given to " 000 "
