> man shutdown
17.35.34 - Mark
I'm trying to fix apache on my colocated linux server and I've done a remote log in as root but I think I need to restart my pretty little box so I've been browsing and I think I've got it, just need the command and syntax for the shutdown command so I've been hitting the man files. Personally I like this entry...
shutdown - close down the system at a given time
shutdown [-] [-fhkrn] time [warning-message ...]
Shutdown provides an automated shutdown procedure for super-users to
nicely notify users when the system is shutting down, saving them from
system administrators, hackers, and gurus, who would otherwise not bother
with such niceties.
Available friendlinesses: :snips out flags:
I think that's unfair, admins and hackers give all sorts of warning. I know I'd give people a warning - maybe a nice little yell after I've hit the enter key...
