Bitbucket plugin development :failed to start at 7990 port

Hi Members,

I am developing bitbucket plugin for pre receive hooks . I have plugin sdk and after setup when i run `atlas-run` it gives me below error :

The Tomcat connector configured to listen on port 7990 failed to start. The port may already be in use or the connector may be misconfigured.


Since before plugin development I had a bitbucket server already running at 7990 port .I understand bind exception on same port however i have tried stopping service assuming it will create and bind again but it does nothing with endless retry . I tried giving different port in _start-webapp.bat before running atlas-run . Still there was no success .


Any suggestion would be highly appreciated .


Thank you in advance .

on your laptop some app using the same port, 

please do netstat -anpt |grep 7990 

after you can detect the app
