Hi Guys,
Following is the error i am getting when i run server, please tell me how to do solve the issue,

Several ports (8005, 8080, 8009) required by Tomcat v6.0 Server at localhost are already in use. The server may already be running in another process, or a system process may be using the port. To start this server you will need to stop the other process or change the port number(s).

Thanks & Regards,
