my ruby rails server is already running, how do I pause this?

I am a Windows user, and I typed 'rails server' once. but then, I can't pause this with the proper command, Ctrl+Pause/Break. I even could not access to or after the first execution of 'rails server'.

What is the solution?

  1. Try Crtl + C to stop the rails/webrick server that you started from the console.

  2. Try http://localhost:3000 and see if you can access the app there when you re-start the server.

Thank you so much.

I just accessed to the path, and physically deleted the temporary .pid file. and now it works..
