Hello, I'm in process to learn control my VPS (cPanel/WHM). I'd like to know ways how to restart my VPS from SSH or WHM safely?

Thanks in advanced!

From WHM - click restart ;)

From SSH - type shutdown -r now
Are you sure this is exact?

I have just asked my VPS provider support, he suggest

With SSH
Using the command "reboot" you can restart the VPS

With WHM
Login to WHM >> Home >> System Reboot >> Graceful Server Reboot
why having 2 different commaned between you and me

From SSH - type shutdown -r now and reboot ?? :confused:

Hello,

There are numerous methods in which you could reboot your server, the most recommended being via your WHM control panel utilising the Graceful Server Reboot feature. The following SSH commands can also be used, and both function the same:

reboot & shutdown -r now

Be careful with the shutdown command though, without that fancy little "-r" the server will completely shut down and you'll need to run a power cycle.
