try [netstat -ta] and see the listening port. By default port 8069 and 8070 should be free before using odoo.

The issue is another openerp instance is running in same port. Try this command from terminal. netstat -tulpen | grep 8069. If you are using different port other than 8069, then use that instead of 8069. You will get this result :

janeesh@janeesh:~$ netstat -tulpen | grep 8069
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info
 will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN      1000       135907      6888/python

6888 is the prpcess id. Kill the process with this command : kill -9 6888.

Restart server again. Then it will be ok.

service openerp is started 'Address already in use'

use command ps aux | grep openerp to kill this service image description

THis action only solves the issue of the moment, and after rebooting, you come back to the same situation.....
