Suddenly unable to start server...

Hi all,


I'm suddenly this moning repeatedly getting an error trying to start the server (OSX yosemite, developer server license)


"Another copy of FileMaker Server (XXX) is already running with this license. This copy of FileMaker Server will not open any databases, but will allow updating the license key in the Admin Console."


I have not done an OS update, or otherwise changed anything since last night when I went to sleep, when it was working fine.



I did a quick google and about the only thing I could find is this: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14127/~/filemaker-server-13.0v5%3A-license-key-conflict-with-self.


I changed my machine's name as per those instructions, changed the server name in the server "general settings" tab, tried re-entering the licence key, etc all to no avail.



Does anyone have any ideas?


I've been developing a DB solution on that server for about 10 days now, so I'd be rather unhappy if it's disappears....
