Hi,
I am using Tomcat 6 on Mac os x Leopard. I came upon the 'several ports required by tomcat already in use' message when I tried to start my server. This seemed to have occurred right after I tried to run my web application directly in Safari, which ran fine. But then I tried to run it from within eclipse and I get this error.
I know I can change the port number in server.xml. But I would like to know which application is using that port. I tried the netstat command, but I couldn't understand the information.

Thanks.

The error message litetally says it: port 8080 is already in use.

Shutdown the server which you already started before starting another one from Eclipse. Or change the port number of one of both. You cannot let multiple applications listen on the same port.

To determine which is running on port 8080, simply open http://localhost:8080 in your webbrowser and explore.

Problem solved. Restarted mac and Tomcat starts usual.

I will do that if this happens again.

When this problem was on going http://localhost:8080 in Safari took me to the Tomcat homepage.

Thanks.

So, Tomcat was already started outside control of Eclipse. Instead of restarting the computer you can also just stop it using the command console scripts, or by service manager, or by killing the java.exe (or whatever it is called in Mac) in the task manager.
