Hi all
I have installed JBOSS in my system and tried to start that. But while starting I am getting a saying that Port:8080 already in use. I am not running anyother server and I have restarted several times. But the exception persists. I couldnt locate the process that is using the port through Task Manager. Now is there any way to change the JBoss's port from 8080 to some other port, so that I will be able to run it?.

You can change the http port of jboss from jboss-service.xml file, if you are using JBoss 3 then it is in jboss_home/server/default/deploy/jboss-tomcat/META-INF. there you can see http port, you chage it, in JBoss for i think it is in deploy directory it slef, Please check with the JBoss installation. I think there is IIS running in your machine in 8080 port, you can stop it from there services of windows. Either of the option will help you.
