My 8080 port is already occupied by jenkins.

I want to run the student app on some other port. How can i do that.

Right now it is failing with this error:



The Tomcat connector configured to listen on port 8080 failed to start. The port may already be in use or the connector may be misconfigured. Address already in use
at Method) ~[na:1.8.0_231]
at ~[na:1.8.0_231]
at ~[na:1.8.0_231]



Please help.

This means some app is blocking the port 8080. This application only runs on 8080

Generally skype blocks 8080

Please restart pc. Then close all apps which open by themselves.


Sorry for delay.. was not well
