Rebooting your VPS or Dedicated server
Posted by Noble M on 30 June 2014 07:34 AM

If you’d like to reboot your VPS or dedicated server after making any configuration changes or due to any reason, you can do that in a couple of minutes using different methods. Here’s how you do it:

Method - 1 : Using SSH

If you don’t have a control panel for your VPS, don’t worry. We’ll show you how to do it using SSH. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Firstly, access your hosting server using SSH (Click here if you don't know how to login using SSH)

  2. Once logged in, type in the command reboot now & hit Enter (If you want to do a hard server reset, you can type in the command reboot -f. This may result in loss of data)

That’s it. That’ll reboot your server in a couple of minutes. Wasn’t that super easy?

 

Method - 2 : Using Parallels Power Panel

If you don’t want to use SSH and don’t have a cPanel, you can reboot your server using Parallels Power Panel. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Login to your Parallels Power Panel (Click here if you don't know how to login using SSH)

  2. Click on "Restart"

That’s it. That’ll should take around a couple of minutes to reboot your server. Quick-n-Easy, ain’t it?

 

Method - 3 : Using cPanel

If you’ve got a cPanel, you need not access your server using SSH. You can do it using WHM. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Login to your WHM panel.


  2. In the System Reboot section, Click on "Graceful Server Reboot" (If you want to do a hard server reset, you can click on "Forceful Server Reboot". This may result in loss of data)

  3. Click on "Proceed"


That’s it. It should take a couple of minutes for your server to reboot.
