    I just have a question about something that I have noticed.

    Every five minuted a connection is created to the FTP server, and then it is immediately closed. Why is this?

    Code:
    Sep 7 20:15:01 server pure-ftpd: (?@localhost.localdomain) [INFO] New connection from localhost.localdomain
    Sep 7 20:15:01 server pure-ftpd: (?@localhost.localdomain) [INFO] Logout.
    Sep 7 20:20:01 server pure-ftpd: (?@localhost.localdomain) [INFO] New connection from localhost.localdomain
    Sep 7 20:20:01 server pure-ftpd: (?@localhost.localdomain) [INFO] Logout.
    Sep 7 20:25:01 server pure-ftpd: (?@localhost.localdomain) [INFO] New connection from localhost.localdomain
    Sep 7 20:25:01 server pure-ftpd: (?@localhost.localdomain) [INFO] Logout.
    Also, how do you ftp to the server using the root information? I would like to put a site up at the server directory.

    Thanks.

    That's ISPConfig's monitoring module, trying to find out if Pure-FTPd is up and running.

    Thanks for the information. I thought that it was something like that, but I just wanted to be sure that nothing else was going on.

    You can setup manually a virtual user account as root or you can use the pure-pw tool witch has the following syntax:

    <account>:<password>:<uid>:<gid>:<gecos>:<home directory>:<upload
    bandwidth>:<download bandwidth>:<upload ratio>:<download ratio>:<max number
    of connections>:<files quota>:<size quota>:<authorized local IPs>:<refused
    local IPs>:<authorized client IPs>:<refused client IPs>:<time
    restrictions>
