Rstudio server fails to start

I have been trying to restart the Rstudio server on our group server machine. However, this fails with error messages such as this:

ERROR system error 98 (Address already in use); OCCURRED AT rstudio::core::Error rstudio::core::http::initTcpIpAcceptor(rstudio::core::http::SocketAcceptorService<rstudio_boost::asio::ip::tcp>&, const string&, const string&) src/cpp/server/ServerInit.cpp:103; LOGGED FROM: int main(int, char* const*) src/cpp/server/ServerMain.cpp:635


PID 136193 read from file /var/run/ does not exist or is a zombie.

Can someone please help me with this? I am running the latest rstudio server with default settings (port 8787).

Here is the output of the status command:
