Hai friends.....

I am Getting the following error while running the tomcat server in eclipse .

Several ports (8006, 8087, 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).

My Path variable is : C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin


My Class Path Variable is :
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin;C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin;C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\lib\servlet-api.jar;

Tomcat Server version is : Tomcat 6.0

That Error Was coming even if i change the Port Numbers

Could you Please tell me that Why that error was coming........

Thanks in Advance

Begging won't get an answer any quicker. We don't get paid here, so we only check in when it's convenient.

This message would seem to indicate that you already have another copy of Tomcat running somewhere. Probably as a stand-alone Windows Service. Only one program can "own" a TCP/IP listening port at a time, so when your Eclipse plugin tried to start a second Tomcat and it found that something was already monitoring those ports, you got error messages.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
