How to reboot your dedicated server via WHM?

The WHM panel provides two options for a server reboot:

  • Forceful Server Reboot
  • Graceful Server Reboot

The recommended option is Graceful Reboot. This way the reboot will be queued, and when all services are stopped the server will be restarted.

In a case there is a very high load on the server, the Graceful Reboot might not be sufficient. Then you will need to use the Forceful Server Reboot option.
