Newbie-server bound to 3000, cannot disconnect


#1

I know there is a super easy answer to this, i just can’t remember. I
have fired up my server on port 3000… and want to disconnect it. easy.

ERROR MESSAGE:

=> Booting lighttpd (use ‘script/server webrick’ to force WEBrick)
=> Rails application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options)
2006-04-04 09:22:26: (network.c.300) can’t bind to port: 3000 Address
already in use
Exiting

THANKS

Hi Mason,

Does calling it with ‘-d’ (per line three in the error message) not do
the
trick?

That message is the script/server startup message and it’s telling you
that
something else is already using port 3000 so it can’t run.

Most likely you already have a instance of lighttpd running on port
3000.

kill the process then try running script/server again. (if on *nix, run
ps
a|grep light to get the pid)

if you edit the config/lighttpd.conf file, you can change the port.
this is
useful when you have multiple apps and want to run them simultaneously.
