I am new user to Open ERP and Ubuntu I have followed the step by step installation instructions on how to do get the server up and running. I am getting an error code when I try to start up OpenERP that a port is already in use when I kill the process and try to run the command again I still get the same error. Please see below error that I am getting from the server

On your configuration file change the port 8069 to another one. That works for me because I am running 2 versions of OpenERP

look at the process running. If there are 2 instances of openERP they could be messing each other up.

try stopping the server - type ps aux | grep openerp to confirm you stopped the server, then start the server again.

If that doesn't solve the problem you will have to figure out what other program is using that port and shut it down/ get it to use a different port.

Use netstat -tlnp | grep 8069 to try to figure out what program is using that port.

Address already in use.

so kill all process openerp and restart server openerp and must work.

I killed the server and restarted and samething itsja@itsja-PowerEdge-T105:~$ ps ax | grep openerp-server 10068 ? Sl 0:21 python /opt/openerp/server/openerp-server 10214 ? Sl 0:01 python /opt/openerp/server/openerp-server 10914 ? Sl 0:04 python /opt/openerp/server/openerp-server 12733 ? Sl 0:02 python /opt/openerp/server/openerp-server 15465 ?

Are you sure you are killing the processes - what you pasted looks like you have SIX server processes running.
