Linux: Killing a process occupying a particular port

0 votes

I'm trying to close tomcat. I tried using ./shutdown.sh inside the tomcat /bin directory but it didn't shutdown properly because I couldn't restart the server.

Now I want to kill the tomcat process running on the port 8080. So is there a way to get the process from an occupied port and then kill it.

Use the port command to find the process bound on the port, in your case its 8080:

fuser 8080/tcp

to kill the process do:

fuser -k 8080/tcp
