For the last two days the server has rebooted itself twice at the same time each night around 12:00AM

Shows this in the log:

What could be causing this? Before the last two nights the server was up 150+ days straight.

Check for any cronjobs running around this time to be sure there isn't something running that is causing this. You may also want to check /var/log/messages for any errors or log output around the time the reboot was initiated.
