I was trying to set up a Minecraft server, no bukkit or anything, so me and a friend could play together. I got most if not everything right, all done with no problems. Except for one, I'll paste what my server log says:
[WARNING] **** FAILED TO BIND TO PORT!
[WARNING] The exception was: java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address: JVM_Bind
[WARNING] Perhaps a server is already running on that port?
(port is 25565)
I remember having an old classic server with the same port, but it hasn't been up in maybe two years now. I don't think I even have the server files for it. Also, I tried switching the ports to close numbers such as 25566 or whatever but they gave me the same error.
Is there any more info I need to post? Is there a solution to this?
Yep, this means you do have another server running on the port. Either restart the machine if possible and stop the creative server from running, or change the port to something else for the survival server and open that up.
