This section of WHM allows you to reboot your server.
Depending in the situation that has caused you to need to reboot your server will change what method that you should use.
It is always strongly recommend that you use the Graceful Reboot method rather than the Forceful Reboot method, this is because a Forceful Reboot can cause data loss for you and your users.
The Graceful Reboot method allows the server to close any user-level processes and store their data before the reboot begins.
In order to perform this process, you will need to navigate to the Graceful Server Reboot interface and click Proceed.
This method does not result in data loss as a result it is strongly recommend that you use this method whenever possible.
The Forceful Reboot method will shut down your server, regardless of any error or errors that the server will encounter in doing so.
In order to perform this process, you will need to navigate to the Forceful Server Reboot interface and click Proceed.
This method should only be used if the Graceful Reboot function does not work. We recommend however, that you reboot your system with this method, instead of with the physical reset switch (a hard reset) if you can.
