How do I reboot my VPS?
There are 3 ways you can reboot your VPS without contacting our support staff.
You can reboot your VPS from within the OS itself (
sudo shutdown -r now)
You can reboot your VPS from your Portal account
- Click on your VPS service from the "My Services" screen or the Dashboard.
Under "Virtual Machine Detail", find the "Action" buttons
- Click Shutdown and wait approximately 60 seconds
- Click Boot and wait approximately 60 seconds for your VPS to boot
If your VPS does not come back up, repeat the procedure but this time select Power Off
If your VPS still does not come back up, you may manage your VPS using out-of-band management and proceed to fix what is preventing it from coming back up.
Please note it is your responsibility to repair any broken configuration within your VPS.
You can reboot your VPS from the SSH-based management console
- Use the same procedure as described above for the Portal, but instead use the console menu
