Error: Starting Tomcat v6.0 server at localhost has encountered a problem in eclipse

Port 8080 required by Tomcat v6.0 Server at localhost is already in use. The server may already be running in another process, or a system process may be using the port. To start this server you will need to stop the other process or change the port number(s).

If Port 8080 is already in use then use another port in place of port 8080.
Double click on Tomcat Server at localhost
Next Screen is following and port in red circle is the port that is already in use.

We only need to change this port 8080 to any other valid port which is not in use by other process.

Press Ctrl+s to Save the changes made by you and then right click over Tomcat Server and click start.
