iTerm crashed on my this morning taking down my development Rails process. Now, I’m busy tailing cullect.com‘s production.log and listening to some podcasts so I didn’t want to restart1
A little Googling found John Nunemaker’s year-old, “Oops I did it again” post.
His tips worked. An I’m rewriting the following for Future Reference2:
$ ps aux | grep script/server
To get the process id you need to kill
$ kill [PID #]
1. My standard way of restarting Rails in this situation.
2. If memory serves, this was the name of the first inhouse blog I started .
