Port 8081 error install apache

Hello everyone, I am trying to install hestiacp but I receive an error from apache, I see that I have port 8081 in use, but I cannot change it, since another application uses it, is there any way to install hestiacp, changing the port for example to 8082?.

Starting The Apache HTTP Server…
(98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down

sorry my bad english

DId you installed hestia on a clean server? It looks like there are other services running.

if I have another service running that uses port, 8081, is there any way I can change that on installation? or would I have to skip installing apache and leave only nginx?

There is a fat note on the installation requirements:

NOTE: Hestia Control Panel must be installed on top of a fresh operating system installation to ensure proper functionality.

There is no supported way to install it on another port.
