    Linux Server Re-Boot


    Just to know any technical reason and in that we can convey to anyone that Linux Server could not re-boot abnormally just due to any application behaviour and becuase application user rights have very low.

    The best way to see what happened to the server is to examine the logs
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Depends on your distribution, but most probably under /var/log.

    If the server rebooted it was most likely due to a hardware error. That's if it did it itself rather than the usual human error that causes this sort of thing.
