Bundled cabi install


In this scenario default port 80 was used for cabi which is specified as http_port in wasp 
  • Deactivate wasp and cabi probe and check if port 80 ( or whatever port specified ) is free using netstat 
  •  In this case port 80 was being used by some other OS application for example iis even though wasp probe got active as seen in Infrastructure Manage with port and pid.          
  •  Free up the port and follow the cabi procedure to reinstall again which should be successful now.
