Stop Pure-FTP logging to /var/log/messages

Please would it be possible to alter the default configuration of pure-ftp so that it doesn't log every connection /var/log/messages ?

I only ever look in /var/log/messages when there's a problem and having to scroll through many pages of:

Sep 29 03:53:19 hostname pure-ftpd: (__cpanel__service__auth__ftpd__odNJ7N3kXIUzTc2nX_OJKeukP9wYAxjKg2bWslQo8cYcK7V4aZjhP_T7Qlg4qLds@ [INFO] Logout.

Sep 29 03:58:19 hostname pure-ftpd: (?@ [INFO] New connection from

over a slow connection is really tedious.

Supposing you are needing to see this information?

If you don't want to see it, do something like the following, instead of cat or however you view your log files.

  1. # grep -v /var/log/messages
