Failed to check session lock

Failed to check session lock errors can occur randomly and usually begin with this line:
net.minecraft.server.WorldConlictException: Failed to check session lock, aborting

It will cause your server to crash. The fix for this is to simply navigate to your world folders and delete the session.lock files in them, then restart your server.
