Yes, I googled it before I post on this forum don't worry... Anyways when I tried to do sudo puppet master --verbose --no-daemonize the error could not run: address already in use -bind(2) pops up. Note 1) I do not have apache2 installed so apache can't be using port 8140 2) initially, the error isn't bind(2) but smething about I removed it and now I get this error 3) when i typed "netstat -ntlp" I see port 8140 is in "LISTEN" state. I don't know what it means. 4) I did typed server puppetmaster stop to make sure puppetmaster is not running on 8140 before i type the verbose command.

Please help

When i type netstat -ntlp | grep 8140 the follow appear

tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN

Can you show us the output of `netstat -ntlp | grep 8140` please? There might be a PID/Program name column that will tell us which PID/process is using port 8140.

^ it looks something like this tcp 0: *:* LISTEN

Is that definitely the entire output?

You could also run the command "lsof -i :8140" to see the process that holds the port.
