How to restart a Linux server from a putty? How to fix a Linux operating system that has crashed and restarted again? The answers to these questions are not as obvious as one would expect.
Most people who use Linux, and more specifically LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) outsource their operating system updates and domain name resetting to different companies or web hosting solutions. When they reboot their servers they are actually putting in their own Putty file.
What is Putty?
Putty is a command-line utility for Linux. It is used to communicate with the Linux operating system. It is used to boot up, shut down, create domains, manage users and other options. The most common use for it is creating a domain name.
Let us assume that we have decided to take advantage of domain name management and how to restart the Linux server from Putty.
We will create a new user called “Domain Admin”. We will then edit the ownership of our domain name to “Domain Admin” with our root password. Now we can log into our domain name as “Domain Admin”. In the control panel area, go to “Usrtab” and click on “Add”.
Once you have completed this step, reboot your server. You will see a message in the console stating that you successfully partitioned your disk and completed the installation of Linux.
You can verify this by running “ps”. The output will indicate that there is an open session in the foreground where you can start logging in as “Domain Admin”. If you get a similar message at the bottom of the screen, you need to restart the server.
There are other ways in which you can solve this problem. One is to use a Linux live CD to put your domain name on. Another is to add the –with-root-uid option to your Linux command line. This will cause your Linux to use the UBX protocol for logging.
Unfortunately, in the event that your domain name is unavailable or no longer available, there is another way to resolve this issue.
How to use Putty and create bootable media using DVD disks
This method is to use Putty and also to create bootable media using DVD disks.
To do this:
Step1: Install Putty on your computer
you will have to install Putty on your computer first. If you already have it installed, you can use the /etc/init.d/security configuration file to activate the Putty server and then either create the bootable media or insert the disks in the computers data port.
Step2: Connect to your domain name using your keyboard
The next step will be to connect to your domain name using your keyboard. It is advisable to use the arrow keys to highlight the domain name and then press the TAB character to bring up the menu.
From here, you will see the option to boot the system. Select this option and then restart the server.
Step3: Access your domain name from the control panel and change the details
The final step is to access your domain name from the control panel and change the details of your domain name. Then restart the machine. For more information on how to restart Linux from Putty, you can visit Linux tutorials at the Cyberciti blog.
This article has shown you the simple ways to configure your domain name on your Linux machine to enable it to restart. There are other methods that could be used to restart your server.
You could try to reboot the machine with the letters C (computation key) and then enter 8. If this does not work, you might have to reset the password of your server first. If you do not know how to do this, you can search online for tutorials.
Restart Linux server using the command line
The most secure way to restart your Linux server is to use the command line option. This method requires that you enter a series of commands followed by the keywords r (restart) or S (system reboot).
In Linux, you can enter these commands via the console or through the login prompt that comes after you log in to your domain name. There are other ways of rebooting your machine, but manual intervention may be risky.
If you do not know how to do this, you can contact the developer of the operating system that you use for support.
Other Options: reboot your machine through a virtual machine
Another option that you have is to reboot your machine through a virtual machine. You can download and install virtual machines from the official website of your hosting provider.
Log into your VMWare portal, select the option to create a new virtual machine and follow the instructions on how to install the necessary software. Then, reboot your machine as needed to put you back in control of your domain name and database. However, be warned that it may take up to an hour for your VMWare platform to detect and load the necessary programs.
Last option: Boot your machine using the BIOS
If neither of these options works, the last possible option is to boot your machine using the BIOS. Once you hit the BIOS key, your PC will restart automatically as the memory and resources of your machine are refreshed.
However, this is not a permanent solution and if you choose to go the BIOS route, you have to remember to reboot your machine after some time.
The good thing is that there are free software tools that you can download to help you boot your Linux machine automatically. Using these tools, you can easily reset the various settings and options that allow you to reboot your machine as needed.
