    That's a nasty error - basically you killed the server while it was in the middle of saving a chunk, and it's corrupted. I hope you have map backups, because there's no other way to fix it.

    My first thought was map corruption.

    dark navi

    Make sure you have read/write permissions in that directory.

    If it is a problem with just a single chunk, then it is not hard to fix. If the entire map is corrupted, then its not possible to fix ;)

    i managed to fix it after the whole thing finished loading just do the command in console "save-all" and the chunks will be "uncorrupted"

    Nice thread necro and the funny thing is that Chunkster wasn't even published until March 12th so it wouldn't have helped him.

    i had this same problem, happened when my server was running but then my computer crashed, i managed to fix it after like 20 minutes of looking up the error and reading threads, forgot how to fix it but i think its something with the nether, disable the nether and delete your nether world, helped when i had that problem.

    Yeah i got this error, after my pc crashed i fixed it, i think we shall see, by opening the levels in MCEdit and saving them then restarted the server. there may have been duplication or removal of sometools but otherwise for not having a back up i thought it went swell.

    I can't stop getting this error! The backup worlds work, but my server keeps abruplty shutting down. I need another way to fix this problem cause peoples builds keep getting wiped.
    (I also noticed, that it seems to happen after using MCedit...) Chunkster doesn't help.
