    Oct 15 17:54:33 server pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [ERROR] altlog /var/log/xferlog: Too many levels of symbolic links

    Just got that ... we are on the newest version of pure-ftpd (i just changed from pro to pure today)

    We are also on WHM 9.9.0 cPanel 9.9.1-C52.

    Should i be worrying about this or do i just need to upgrade to the newest version of cPanel?

    Try this..

    #This should show as follows;
    ls -l /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Oct 17 09:10 /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog

    ls -l /var/log/xferlog
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 Oct 17 09:16 xferlog -> ../../usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog

    If the above does not match yours, then

    rm -f /var/log/xferlog
    cd /scripts
    ./ftpup --force


    Error should be gone now.

    It appeared as you said.

    ls -l /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 11620537 Oct 15 11:14 /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog


    ls -l /var/log/xferlog
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 Oct 11 23:22 /var/log/xferlog -> ../../usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog

    Tried the ftpup but error still occurs.
