Hi there, I am looking to restart the server via SSH i don't want to restart any services but i want to restart the whole my VPS server. Does someone post some useful ssh commands to restart my hosting server without using VPS web control panel? it would be great since I want to control my server by myself. Please share commands with detailed explanations.

@VirtuBox, This command is correct to restart a VPS/dedicated server.

For me, I use this command.

Code:
shutdown -r now

Thanks you guys for share great commands!

+1 for fwh

shutdown -r now

shutdown tells server to shutdown
-r tells it to restart
now is when you want it to happen
Code:
shutdown [COLOR="#FF0000"]-r[/COLOR] now
-r seems is a parameter and there are also other parameters for this which i can add to the command?

It's diff for cpanel / Plex or others.

if no cpanel then tell me what OS

Thanks
