Exclamation Urgent help needed! (Minecraft and PuTTy)

Hello, I am managing a MC server with the Owner. And recently he has given me the PuTTy login details to start servers if they crash. We are using bungee and there is multiple screens that I can connect to for diffirent types of servers.

Anyways I was trying to fix up one of our servers (Creative) when I was detaching from the screen it said [screen is terminating] and now it's gone from the list of screens when I do screen -ls. I am a complete noob and I have no idea on what to do all I know how to do is the commands he gave me which was just screens to connect to servers. Can someone walk me through this to get the server back on my screen list?!!? Please help me!!

if screen terminated, it terminated !

easily done, and not the end of anything real.

normally you would detach from screen with ( Ctrl+a d )
screen is still running, and you get back with screen -x <name>

it is easy to 'skip' the a and send just a Crtl+d , if it were the last shell in the screen then screen exits

Now, to get it back, best bet is 'hold up hands' and ask your friend, it might be scripted

as an example, here is one of my dumb scripts

. /home/firerat/.profile
screen -s /bin/bash -dmS AndroidCompiler -t AndroidCompiler
screen -S AndroidCompiler -p 0 -X stuff $'/home/firerat/bin/ '$@'\n'
( "stuff" is a legit screen command , not something I made up
best 'example' I can come up with right now is

basically I have a cronjob which starts that script
it starts screen, and then injects a command, a script which runs off and gets cyanogenmod source updates and then compiles (or fails to )

So hopefully your friend has some script(s) which setup the screen sessions for each server
