If someone could let me know whats wrong thatd be great! thank you

your spigot.yml file is busted, did you run out of disk space or something?

Not sure, it says im running 3014/5120 MB
Was using 3gb before and upgraded to 6 and its still happening

What should I do about that?

You need to restore a copy of your spigot.yml or delete it and generate a new one, I’d also be weary as corruption like that specifically implies that either you modified the file and tried to run the server before it was fully uploaded, or, the file failed to save to the disk fully

Alright cool, thanks, id be able to reset the server but put my old world back in right (from a backup on my personal pc) ?
