Fix my Minecraft Server after trying to update

I followed the instructions here when trying to update the difficulty setting on my server. I even created a backup of the config before doing anything.

I only changed the difficulty line on the file, but after rebooting the server, all I get on trying to log into the game is: Failed to connect to the server - Connection refused no further information.

I then went to restore the backup file and received the same error. At this point I realized that I did all of this from the root login as opposed to the user that created the system. I have attempted to correct the ownership/group of the files I touched but am not having any luck.

Any ideas?
