Thanks... turns out that process is the only couch running and is 
listening on 5984 and is my existing couch and not my new shiny copy 

Turns out that won't start couch if there's already another one running.
When I stopped my other couch and used the given command to start this 
one then it worked... and using the init script I could then start my 
existing couch again, thus having them both run...

Thanks for all the help :)
