This is the most common error which is encountered while starting the selenium server. The origin of this error is the fact that selenium server always tries to listen at port 4444 by default .
There are chances that when you are running tests, the server might not be shutdown properly. In this case, when you try to re-run your tests, you may encounter the following error
I Google for a solution and finally i got solution from my friends blog
Solution for the above problem is , type the below in the browser URL and the server will be stopped
