For WHM version 11.30
The WHM interface offers you two methods for rebooting your server. The method you should employ to reboot your server depends upon the events leading up to the reboot. We only recommend rebooting your server when troubleshooting an issue the occurs during start-up or when disabling SELinux.
(Main >> System Reboot >> Forceful Reboot
This method will shut down the computer regardless of what error(s) the server has encountered. It is preferable to reboot your system using this method versus using the physical reset switch (a hard reset). However, a graceful reboot is preferable to a forceful reboot as a forceful reboot can cause data loss
: This method should only be used in the event the graceful reboot function is not working.
(Main >> System Reboot >> Graceful Reboot
These restart method is preferred to any other. This allows the server to close any user-level running processes before restarting, storing data as it does so. This reboot method will not result in data loss.
: Use this method whenever possible.
