Splunk Enterprise

After installing Splunk Light, is there a way to change the port from 8000 to any port I want?

I installed free Splunk light for Windows 64-bit, and after installation, port 8000 was taken so I was unable to start Splunk light.

Is there a way where I can change the port from 8000 to any port that I want?

Edit $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\system\local\web.conf (create it if it doesn't exist) and add the lines

httpport = 8001 # or another port of your choice

Then restart Splunk.
