SYS_CONFLICT:1001 error in the BrowserStack Binary

Explanation and next steps

Error Code 1001
Fatal Yes, this is an error that the Binary can’t auto-recover from, and the process will exit with exit code 126.
Class SYS_CONFLICT
Class Meaning This class of errors arises by configuration conflicts between the parameters that the BrowserStack Binary is trying to start with and any restrictions placed either by BrowserStack or your system settings.
Message(s) [ERROR] Necessary ports to start BrowserStack Binary were occupied by PID: {other_pid}
[ERROR] Please ensure that port 45691 is available for use
OR
[ERROR] Another instance of BrowserStack Binary is running with on your system with PID: {local_pid}
[ERROR] Please close it and try again
Error Meaning The BrowserStack Binary communicates with the BrowserStack cloud using port 45691. If another instance of the Binary (or a different process) is occupying the specified port, the server cannot be established.
Mitigation Steps You can follow any of the following steps:

* Terminate the conflicting process, as given in {other_pid} / {local_pid} and try again, or
* Start the Binary with flag “–only-automate“

Note: While the second option will start the Binary, you will only be able to use the Local tunnel for BrowserStack Automate tests, and will not enable Local functionality on BrowserStack Live
