I chose custom install for a new install with our developer license, so I could install it alongside another Confluence for testing. However, it can't start due to port 8000 already being in use, when I specifically chose a different port (8001). This confuses me and I cannot find any user error here. Here is the output of the install:

And here is the complaint in the log, though I will attach the full one:

It is obviously the other Confluence install listening on port 8000, as expected:
