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? Bill ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mason Kessinger" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: 2006-04-04 9:42 AM Subject: [Rails] newbie-server bound to 3000, cannot disconnect

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.
