How to Reboot a Linux Server?

We can reboot a Linux Operating System Server with the help of reboot command.

$ sudo reboot

Note: If you are not an root user then may have to use sudo.

Though reboot command is a simpler way to initiate a system reboot, and is widely supported by various Linux distributions. However, if your Linux distribution uses systemd, you can also use systemctl to achieve the same result.

$ sudo systemctl reboot

If you are having problems reboot, then you can try a force reboot by add a --force flag to the above command (not recommended unless the only way out).
