Port 35729 is already in use by another process

I’ve run into this error a couple of times recently when using the Yeoman webapp generator with Livereload. After trying changing the port used by the Livereload server in the Gruntfile and still seeing the error, running this command in the terminal…

lsof | grep 35729

…confirmed that Sublime Text was the port hogging culprit. Specifically the Livereload Sublime plugin. Disabling this plugin resolvedĀ the conflict.

    So how do I disable this plugin on sublime?

    If you installed with package control, open the command palette, (Cmd-Shift-P on Mac) and type ‘Package Control: Remove Package’, hit enter and then locate the plugin in the list. If you are not using package control, I believe you will need to locate the plugin folder and delete it.
