[Solved] Unable to bind to address

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: manjaro linux
    • Java Runtime Environment: 8
    • openHAB version: 2.5

On a fresh install of openhab my log shows the following error:

java.io.IOException: Failed to bind to /
Caused by: java.net.BindException: Address already in use

With some java errors in between… I assume this is because the network on my server is using a bridged ethernet connection as it is my router/switch.

Is there a way to force openhab to a set ip address?

Ah I just rememberd I have mpd using port 8080!
How can i change openhab port?

Solution: just use https:
