Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

I'll give the answer here to for future refference but please don't post twice:

Start a new thread for a new question.

The command you are probably looking for is:
service vsftpd stop

To stop it running on boot:
chkconfig --level 345 vsftpd off

Lightbulb Re:ftp stop


If your ftp servivces was instaled running with xinetd services, you need to edit the file /etc/xinetd/"wu-ftp" i don't now exatly the name and set line disable yes, after that must restart xinetd services (/etc/init.d/xinted restart).
If you ftp server run as daemon , you need just to close this daemon or services with /etc/init.d/"name services" stop and for remove the startup scripts use chkconfig --del "name of services"
