IMPORTANT: Do not set two tasks to run at the same time, they will clash and neither will work properly. For example, if you set up automated backups to occur every 2 hours starting at 12:00AM, do not also set up server restarts to occur every 2 hours at 12:00AM

IMPORTANT: Avoid creating tasks within an hour either side of 04:00 AM to avoid performing scheduled task during our disaster recovery backup window/time.


How to set up automatic server restarts:

To set up reoccurring automatic restarts follow these simple steps:

  1. Click the "Scheduled Tasks" button.
  2. Create a new scheduled task and pick the "Scheduled Start/Stop/Restart" option.
  3. Create a name for the scheduled task.
  4. Choose a date and time for the first automatic restart.
  5. Select recur every 1 day.
  6. Select repeat every (your chosen amount of time) hours.
  7. Select "For" 24 hours.
  8. Save the scheduled task.

How to choose time zone:

When logged into the control panel, navigate to My Profile, from here you will see a list of editable content, changing time zone here will change the time that automatic restarts take place, for example if your time zone is set to UTC and you create a restart for 6PM this will take place at 6PM UTC however if you update your time zone to UTC + 2 the server would restart at 8PM UTC
