How To Correctly Reboot - Shutdown

It’s better to use shutdown instead of reboot from the command line.

Use the shutdown command to reboot your server – popular options are as follows:

shutdown -r now – Reboot (“safe” – runs the init scripts associated with the shutdown process)
shutdown -nr now – Reboot (“forced” – skips the init scripts – use of this command option is not recommended, as it may affect database integrity and cause other errors)
shutdown -h now – Halt the VPS (equivalent to a “safe” shut down)
