Why would you want to reboot your VPS at all? Not only does this create downtime for the websites that you are hosting (which shows unreliability to your users/customers), but it is completely un-necessary. You could setup a crontab to execute the reboot command, but that brings me back to my initial question... Why?

Some application like Java will eaten RAM part-by-part, so reboot VPS is something we must do it from a backend.
One of my customer has same request like that.

Our current virtualization is onApp, so we can schedule it by using a custom script from Development Team.
However if you are using OpenVZ/KVM with SolusVM, we must set it another way.
I will try to research how to do it tonight.

This is very simple -- don't know why you'd have to complicate things.
In SSH type the following command:

sudo crontab -e

Once the file is open, add the following line to it:

@daily root /sbin/shutdown -r now

I am looking forward to see your script how to do that, I'm using both directadmin and cpanel/whm (vps)

Jovani, then the above will work for you.

0 0 */3 * * root /sbin/shutdown -r now

This will be for every 3 days. And this will work on any linux distro.
