I have a problem when trying to start up a Spring Boot application. Every time i attempt to start up Tomcat, i get an error saying The Tomcat connector configured to listen on port 8080 failed to start. The port may already be in use or the connector may be misconfigured. I know that it means that port 8080 is already in use and it cannot start up but i have nothing else which is using port 8080.
I have tried changing the port which it uses by adding server.port to the applicaton.properties file but which ever port i use, i still get the same error.
Also, i make sure to stop and restart the application each time so it cannot be the application itself causing the conflict.
