I have a webserver built via virtualbox that I had running fine with Port 80. I am currently trying to change the port # to 8088 so that our IT people can open it to the outside world to allow external connections. I have edited my httpd.conf and changed the listen directive as well as added a virtualhost entry for *:8088. I have also added the port into selinux.
I have a game server running on my CentOS box that binds to port 28960, now when I restarted the game server it stated that it can't bind the port because its in use, but its obviously because the server was restarted, but the port was not closed? How do I check to see if the program is listening, and if its not, then how would I clear the port, so I can start the server back up on port 28960?
