Ionic serve no longer working after git commit

I’ve tried old backups and they seem to work fine, but for some reason with my main project the ionic serve stopped working right after I did a git commit. I’ve tried restarting my pc with no success. No errors are showing, it just stays on “Running serve task. . .”.

ionic run android however does still work absolutely fine

Hmm, odd I’ve never heard of this happening before. You could try a few things to see if there is a port still open.

$ lsof -i tcp:8001

it should give you a PID
then you can do $ kill THE_PID
