Kill a process
Posted on 2005-04-14
I have a VPS running Linux Redhat. I SSH into the shell. I don't have root access. I started a java application that listens on a port. I am testing this application so I let it go all night. Today, I wanted to logini(via SSH) and kill it. I started it like this ("java <someprogram>&") so it would run in the background and stay running even when I logged out. So I go to kill it by, "ps" and then to look for the ID and "kill <id>" But, the process is not listed. I know it is still running because it is still listening on the port, which I can test by running my client java application(I wrote both btw). So how do I kill this process?
