Confluence Fails to start and throws an error

I'm currently experience the following problem with my Confluence installation after a server reboot. There were no changes made on the installation except the config file confluence.cfg.xml. But now when i startup Confluence i get the following error in the browser:

i have removed the cfg.xml file and restarted confluence and still getting the same error.
