No problem with all the questions - I want to get you up and running.

Your clue is this message:


There may already be another process listening on port 8087 (perhaps a
beam.smp from another run that didn't exit).

You can use "netstat -pan | fgrep 8087" to see if a process is
listening on port 8087 and kill it before restarting Riak.
