Failed to check session lock

Sometimes your server might not start and appear like it’s crashing, and if you look at your console or the server log you will see this error:
net.minecraft.server.WorldConlictException: Failed to check session lock, aborting

In order to fix this:
1. Stop your server.
2. Access your files and go into your main world’s folder.
3. Delete the session.lock file you see.
4. Start your server and it should start up with no issues.
