I am trying to kill a process in the command line for a specific port in ubuntu.
If I run this command I get the port:
sudo lsof -t -i:9001
so…now I want to run:
sudo kill 'sudo lsof -t -i:9001'
I get this error message:
ERROR: garbage process ID "lsof -t -i:9001". Usage: kill pid ... Send SIGTERM to every process listed. kill signal pid ... Send a signal to every process listed. kill -s signal pid ... Send a signal to every process listed. kill -l List all signal names. kill -L List all signal names in a nice table. kill -l signal Convert between signal numbers and names.
sudo kill 'lsof -t -i:9001' as well
You want to use backtick not regular tick:
sudo kill -9 `sudo lsof -t -i:9001`
If that doesn’t work you could also use
$() for command interpolation:
sudo kill -9 $(sudo lsof -t -i:9001)
