This is why I shouldn't fiddle with things.   Today I was setting up Apache and subdomains, trying to figure out how to extend my domain name so i could use a subdomain to attach to my minecraft server, so ppl didnt have to type in the numbers everytime.

Now that I messed with it, I get this following error.

java.net.BindException: Address already in use

this happens every time I start up my minecraft server now.

if anyone has any answers, please let me know, and ask me any info you might need :P

This is usually one of two things...

1. There is already an instance of Minecraft running

2. You filled out 'server-ip=' in server.properties (LEAVE THAT BLANK)

When I stop Apache Web Server and then start up minecraft.  The Minecraft server runs flawlessly.  So it had to be something that I did when I tried to bind a subdomain to the Port for Minecraft.

Anyone happen to know how to remove the binded (sub domain/virtual host) inside webmin or any apache server?

You'll have to edit your DNS Zone file to remove the subdomain / A Name.. unless your webmin control panel or whatever is doing it in a different way.

Does your hosting provide access to your dns zone file? Are you doing this on a dedicated server? VPS? What OS?
