You can have it listen to both, and use HTTP redirects to move requests
from the undesired version to the desired version.  You can use IP Table
rules to forward incoming connections from one port to another.

8080 is a common port for proxies, you can strike problems trying to
publicly serve from that port.  Some will block it as an attempt at
stopping potential net abuse.
