Issue Starting Rails Project Locally

A Server is already running

October 23, 2016

Recently ran into an issue where I was getting an error starting a rails project locally after my terminal crashed.

A server is already running. Check /Users/{username}/Documents/dev/{your-project}/tmp/pids/ Exiting. Easy quick solution to kill the existing process

kill -9 $(lsof -i tcp:3000 -t)

Happy coding!
