    Hi

    My VPS has shut itself down at roughly the same time this morning and last week (both on Sunday morning around 2am). What logs should I look at to try and find the cause of this problem.

    Cheers
    Daz

    Hello,

    I will suggest you please /var/log/messages log file of your VPS and also please contact your VPS provider, May be they have rebooted your VPS main node.

    I have a ticket logged, 6987479, I received a reply saying to contact my provider as it looked like a hardware issue. My provider checked and looks like during the backup that the disk stays in readonly mode. They found these logs from when the VPS was restarted :

    How do you know it's an issue with the hard drive ? Can you tell that from the logs ? Is it not the backup process that is causing the disk to stay in read only mode (presumably because I am also backing up the system) ?

    The cPanel backup process does not put your system into read-only mode. This message often indicates an issue with the filesystem. You will need to either run FSCK on the partition, or consult with your provider to determine if it's an issue with the hard drive itself.

    Thank you.
