Hey guys having a bit of a brick wall situation here. I turned on the FTP server on Mavericks using terminal command "sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist" that worked but now I am trying to turn it off using command "sudo -s launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist" problem I am having is once I typed that into terminal is comes up saying "launchctl: Error unloading: com.apple.ftpd"

And will not turn off, any ideas whats going on and how to get it off?
Thanks

You need to stop the service first using :

sudo launchctl stop com.apple.ftpd

then unload
