Default New Linux mail from ISPConfig: error

I keep getting new mail on the user administrator that says the following:

Code:
From root@mysite.com  Thu Nov 19 10:00:05 2009
X-Original-To: root@localhost
To: root@localhost
Subject: WARNING: services not running
Date: Thu, 19 Nov 2009 10:00:04 -0500 (EST)
From: root@mysite.com (root)


WARNING: service ftp not running (server: myserver.mysite.com, port: 21)!

Message generaged at November 19, 2009, 10:00.
But FTP is running fine (proftpd) and even in ISPConfig it says that it's online. How can I stop getting these errors?

Looks ok.
Are you sure that the mail is originating from the right server?

I wonder if this might be a firewall issue, but I'm really not sure. What's the output of
Code:
iptables -L
?

Can you disable fail2ban and see if you still get warning emails regarding FTP?

I just disabled it, and deleted all the mail. I'll see if anything comes back.

Ahhhhh ha. I figured out the problem I had monitoring set up in ISPConfig to monitor one of my other servers, and completely forgot that I set it up. Disabled in the settings, and I haven't let the server sit for a while yet but i'm sure it fixed the problem.
