    I was just watching my /var/log/messags and noticed localhost access to pureftp. They look like cPanel's internal scripts.

    Can someone confirm that the following log entries are to do with cPanel's own scripts (perhaps cPanel backups)?

    Notice they around 5 minutes apart. This is cPanel checking to see that FTP is up and running as per your preferences to check it and restart it if there is a failure.
