I am trying to learn Linux better but currently only have very limited experience - so please excuse my ignorance in this matter.
I am trying to start rails on port 80, and as another user by using
sudo -u [user_name] bundle exec rails s --port=80 -e production
but this is failing with
eventmachine.rb:572:in 'start_tcp_server': no acceptor (RuntimeError)
sudo netstat -anltp|grep :80 shows that port 80 is not open\listening.
I have tried the following, with limited success:
sudo bundle exec rails s --port=80 -e production works in starting the server on port 80, but not as the user I want,
sudo -u [user_name] bundle exec rails s -e production works in starting the server as the correct user, but not on the desired port.
I have temporarily set the user to be in the Administrators group as I have read that its required for ports < 1024, but that hasn't seemed to help either.
What else can I try?
