As stated in the docs, I have succesfully installed, cargo rust and all the required dependencies, However I am unable to run the test validator, this is the error logged, Error: failed to start faucet: Unable to bind faucet to, check the address is not already in use: Address already in use (os error 98)

Just to verify if solana cli has been installed properly, I tested airdroping SOL as well, and it worked just fine, Any possible way to fix this?

lsof -i :9000
kill -9 <process id>
