Cannot deploy reports on localhost/reports

EagleFox asked:

I am using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, Sql Server Reporting Services(SSRS) on an xp virtual machine.. I have created a report and am trying to deploy it… but getting this error…

The specified report server URL http://localhost/Reports could not be found. 
Verify the syntax of the URL and that the report server exists.

I went to see my “services”…. SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) is “started”, but SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) is not. When I try to start it, it says

windows could not start the sql server on local computer error code 10048

I tried to go in cmd and tried

C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQL.1MSSQLBinnsqlservr.exe -sMSSQLSERVER

I get this,
Server Error: 17058, Severity: 16, State: 1.

can someone please help me…

My answer:


10048 means “Address already in use.”

This means that you couldn’t start SQL Server, because SQL Server Express was still running. Stop SQL Server Express, then start SQL Server.
