CF2016 on Mac OS X 10.11.6
After installing CF getting below error, obviously another application is binding to the same port but no idea how to resolve this..
The ColdFusion 2016 server is starting up and will be available shortly.
ERROR: transport error 202: bind failed: Address already in use
ERROR: JDWP Transport dt_socket failed to initialize, TRANSPORT_INIT(510)
JDWP exit error AGENT_ERROR_TRANSPORT_INIT(197): No transports initialized [debugInit.c:750]
In a terminal run the following:
sudo lsof -n -i4TCP:8500 | grep LISTEN
Assuming you didn't change the coldfusion ports, I think thats the default tomcat port.
It should tell you the process that is using the port.
Since you have already installed ColdFusion, you can manually change the port from server.xml. Please follow the steps below.
1. Go to \ColdFusion2016\cfusion\runtime\conf.
2. Take the backup of server.xml and then open with editor.
3. Check for this section on this file and change the connector port from 8500 to something else.
<!-- internal webserver start -->
<Connector port="8500" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
<!-- internal webserver end -->
4. Restart ColdFusion service and try again.
This will save your time for re installation.
