    Reboot your dedicated server via WHM

    Can anyone suggest me how to reboot a dedicated server via WHM?

    Hello,


    There are two options for a server reboot in WHM panel:

    a) Forceful Server Reboot
    b) Graceful Server Reboot

    Graceful Reboot is always recommended in which the reboot will be queued. As soon as all the services are stopped the server will be restarted.

    In a case of major server load, the Graceful Reboot won't be sufficient. Then you will have to use the Forceful Server Reboot option.

      Using WHM, the server can be rebooted using the following two methods-

      Graceful Server Reboot
      In this server reboot method, all services are shut down normally and allowed to finish the running operations and then reboot the server.

      Forceful Server Reboot
      In the forceful server reboot method, all the services are forcefully shut down, and then servers are rebooted. It should be used only when the Graceful Server Reboot method doesn’t work.

        Graceful Server Reboot

        Gracefully rebooting a server from WHM, or performing a “soft” reboot, means that your operating system allows for all services to be ended normally before the system starts the reboot process. This means that your server will request that all running services close their child processes before the services themselves are closed.

        Forceful Server Reboot
        The Forceful Server Reboot is shut down all services forcefully and reboots the server.

        It should not be used unless the Graceful Server Reboot does not work.

          Yes, you are right.. As other have suggested I will also highly recommended to use Graceful Server Reboot option
          so that reboot will be processed in a decent manner. Whereas in case of Forceful Server Reboot the system will
          forcefully shut the server and restart. So, the graceful serer reboot is the better choice.
