Error starting 5222 error while binding on 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 5222

Hi all I just reinstalled a new xmpp server vm with Openfire. I go through all the manual steps and after installing the latest Java and its updates I get

error starting 5222 error while binding on 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 5222 (others ports also)

During the setup I can login to the browser but after that I log out, install Java, open openfire I get this error . I did a netstat shows 5222 us listening but not being used. I will try to disable the server vm firewall see if it will do anything I think I did that to my old vm but it still kept giving the same error.

I’ve seen other posts on this but didn’t see resolution i don’t think… Please help thanks

That typically means that something else is binding to the same port - but you seem to have checked for that. Are you somehow launching Openfire twice, maybe (with the second attempt causing those errors)?

Does the error message contain any more information?
