This article only applies if you are using a custom jar. If you are using a jar found in Multicraft, renaming your server jar is not necessary
On rare occasions, it's possible for a Minecraft server to crash in such a way that Multicraft is not able to end the process. If this happens, when you next try to start the server you will get an error like this:
13.06 11:23:34 [Server] INFO java.net.BindException: Address already in use
13.06 11:23:34 [Server] WARNING Could not bind to host s1.hosthorde.com/188.8.131.52:25565
If this happens, you can make Multicraft kill the old process.
- Stop your server if it's running or attempting to run.
- Using FTP, rename your server jar to custom_server.jar.
- In the Multicraft control panel, change the server selected to custom_server.jar, then click save.
- Start your server.
