I have a Geth server in full mode. It was synced fully and I was using it normally for weeks. Today, I wanted to check the synchronization status, so I used geth attach command to enter to the Geth console. I faced to this error:

Fatal: Failed to start the JavaScript console: api modules: Post dial tcp connect: connection refused

I did not have any change on this server and as I said, it was working well. Now, when I want to run Geth again, it stops working with the below output:

What is the problem for? May you help me please?
