Managing Cloud Servers

Managing Cloud Servers in the Control Panel

You can manage the cloud server power, reboot the server, and pause it in the Control panel.

You can view the list of existing cloud servers in the Servers section.

There are two types of server reboot: software and hard (via shutdown). To reboot a server, select the desired server in the list of servers, and then from the () context menu:

  • click Software reboot for software reboot;
  • click Hard reboot for hard reboot.

You can also rename the server, pause it (click Pause), and rebuild it in the () menu.

To manage the cloud server power, select the required server from the list of servers and click the toggle switch. There are two server states — ACTIVE (enabled) and SHUTOFF (disabled).

Both the server name and its ID can be used as the <Server> parameter.
