    Is this on your own computer?
  4. Only one application can be bound to a port at any time. Failed to bind means something else is using that port. Either find out what the program is and stop it or change your port.

    Go to task manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) -> Processes tab -> Click button 'show processes from all users' -> End any processes called 'java.exe' -> try running bukkit again


    Open terminal, run command " sudo killall -9 java "

    ALSO MAKE SURE THAT: You have not set the server-ip in server.properties, the server-ip line should read:
    with nothing after the equals sign.
