Eventmachine start_tcp_server no acceptor – port is in use or requires root privileges (RuntimeError)
I haven’t been able to run my local server for 3 days now. Restarting my computer doesn’t help. A couple of time, after trying repeatedly about 40-50 times, it randomly worked – I can’t figure out why. I tried a different port once and that worked, but since then, no port works. Every time I try to run my rails server I get this.

When I run
ps aux | grep rails I get this output:
- Forking my existing heroku app for multiple environments
- using github for windows can't start rails server after pulling a repo
- SSHKit::Runner::ExecuteError: Exception while executing on host Net::SSH::AuthenticationFailed: Authentication failed
- rake db:reset ignores changes to migration
- nomethoderror undefined method 'configure' application

When I run
ps aux | grep ruby I get this output:

Are my ports closed for some reason?

I also had same problem
This works for me
$ ps ax | grep rails
then kill process using process id
$ kill -9 [process Id]
$ kill -9 20496
start server again
