    Hello Community,

    I'm new to ISPconfig and I set up a Server (Debian 11) with ISP. I configured that i get a mail, if someone logs in as root.
    Because of the cronjob for "/usr/local/ispconfig/server/" i get every minute a mail.

    So, what does this script do? What is it important for?

    This script is responsible for everything that you configure in ISPConfig and it must be run once a minute as root cronjob.

    Yes, you should check your login detection script why it gets triggered by cronjobs too which are not doing a login. The ISPConfig job runs ". /etc/profile" and in case you have your login detection in there or in a script executed by /etc/profile, then this would explain the false login alerts.
