Trouble logging onto http://127.0.0.1:9090 for initial setup

I intalled openfire for the first time on a linux server and keep getting the following error when trying to access the admin control panel:

Home not found. Define system property “openfireHome” or create and add the openfire_init.xml file to the classpath

What does this mean and how do I go about fixing it???

Here is error.log if helpful:

Hey Jason,

The error java.net.BindException: Address already in use means that another process is using the port. The stack trace belongs to the admin console so you might be running another instance of Openfire that is using the port 9090. Kill all the Openfire instances and just start one. I don’t know how you installed the server but you should follow the steps described in the Installation Guide.

Regards,
