Can't establish connection to server at localhost:8080

Asked by Motion_Noob on 2008-11-26

I've restarted Motion, and I'd like to control it now. In Firefox, both http://localhost:8080 and http://127.0.0.1:8080 return a "can't establish connection to the server" error.

Does restarting Motion automatically restart the webserver?

If not, how can I restart the webserver Motion is using in Ubuntu?

please check if it is running and binded to the port:
$ ls /var/run
$ sudo netstat -pluta

Here are my results:

Firefox still returns a "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8080 .

i cant see motion running or the port binded.

please try:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/motion stop
$ sudo /etc/init.d/motion start
