From man ftpshut..

By placing the server in an "administrative shutdown" mode, clients are barred from their file while the adminstrative work is being done. Once completed, the server can be put back in normal operating mode by simply deleting the shutdown message file, described below.

The ftpshut program works by creating a file, usually /etc/shutmsg, for which the server checks periodically.

Thanks I had found it and problem was resolved by deleting /etc/shutmsg
