Shutting Down the Control Center

The Control Center can be shut down or restarted from the CLI using Linux commands.

Do not remove power from the Control Center while it is running. Failure to shut down properly may result in the loss of data.

Open a console or SSH session with your Control Center and become root.

To restart the Control Center, use the shutdown -r now command.

To shut down the Control Center, use the shutdown -h now command.

Using the shutdown command ensures that all services exit cleanly before the reboot / shutdown.
