Default logs

Here is an extract from the logs when I try to locally log in with pureftp.
I only just noticed that there is a message about the SQL server being down, yet I can
manually connect to the sql database using mysql -p xxx
>use dbispconfig
>select * from ftp_user;
this displays the table

Why is pureftp trying to log in as root, the mysql.conf specifies ispconfig as the user?
