    Hi all, I've tried searching but couldn't find my answer anywhere so I hope that someone here could help me out.
    Basicly it's the annoying messages that a script in 'probably' WHM checks to see if the ftpd is alive. The output is something like this:

    Apr 23 12:38:13 proftpd[13964]: xxx.xxx.net (127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]) - FTP login timed out, disconnected
    Apr 23 12:38:13 proftpd[13964]: xxx.xxx.net (127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session closed.
    Apr 23 12:46:43 proftpd[30657]: xxx.xxx.net (127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]) - FTP login timed out, disconnected
    Apr 23 12:46:43 proftpd[30657]: xxx.xxx.net (127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session closed.

    Apr 23 13:07:00 proftpd[5731]: xxx.xxx.net (127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session closed.


    I removed the checks from the chkservd so it's not there.. Hope someone knows what script calls these functions...


    Thanks in advance

    Go on, have a guess
    That is indeed chkservd. You probably have not removed it fully. If you're happy to have ftp fall over and not restart, then you could try:

    rm -f /etc/chkserv.d/proftpd
    rm -f /var/run/chkservd/ftpd
    service chkservd restart

    Thanks for the help chirpy. Just found a way to direct the ftp-logs to an external file which made it more effective...
