The directory /etc/pve when making changes to the server disappeared, I reverted the changes but still can not see the content, what do I do? I have no backups.
 
As you can see there is nothing in the directory and when I want to restart the services it does not let me

That's normal when the pve-cluster service does not start. Can you find the actual reason for the failure in journalctl -b (you might have to scroll and search a bit)?

Maybe you can tell a little about the changes and how you reverted them?
I have no backups.
It's fine if you don't care about the VMs/containers.

Changes were made to the hosts file to rename the clusters and then returned to the same name.

As you can see I have no more errors that the keys do not exist. and another one I found about ip

There might be something wrong in one of your /etc/hosts file. Please post it and make sure each IP + name is correct in the /etc/hosts file.
Renaming a node while still in cluster, might make some issues. The correct way is to remove the node and the readd it again to the cluster. Please also post /etc/pve/corosync.conf and /etc/network/interfaces of each host.
