Server connectivity error

So recentally my server crashed and I was forced to use the “kill server” option, being that it would not close no matter what I did. Now whenever I try to load any servers on the ip as the one that I had to force close I get an error:

[23:21:01] [Server thread/INFO]: The state engine was in incorrect state POSTINITIALIZATION and forced into state SERVER_STOPPED. Errors may have been discarded.
[23:21:01] [Server thread/INFO]: Holder lookups applied
[23:21:01] [Server thread/INFO]: Applying holder lookups
[23:21:01] [Server thread/WARN]: Can’t revert to frozen GameData state without freezing first.
[23:21:01] [Server thread/WARN]: Perhaps a server is already running on that port?
[23:21:01] [Server thread/WARN]: The exception was: Address already in use
[23:21:01] [Server thread/WARN]: **** FAILED TO BIND TO PORT!
[23:21:01] [Server thread/INFO]: Starting Minecraft server on

and then the server closes. If anyone can offer help it would be awesome! Thanks!

Have you restarted the machine?

How do I do that?
Ignore: Just typing this to get me 20 letters in

If in console type - sudo reboot
Or can probably do it from the turnkey webmin.
