I have a VPS server running CentOS - it's been great for about a year but has just got a little flaky, going down every couple of days and requiring a reboot.
I was hoping you could offer me any basic troubleshooting steps that I might otherwise miss to locate what could be causing this.
I know I'm going to do a lot of hunting through log files, which ones would be the best to start with?
All advice appreciated.
I'm not sure if I should mark this community wiki since it's kind of an open ended question. I still don't quite get what community wiki mode is about. (But I assume I can edit and check the box if I need to)
Update: Problem was being caused by emergency maintenance being performed by my provider, so crisis averted. However, I am still very hungry to learn so feel free to leave more tips. I'll stay active in this question and upvote the ones that help me learn or are otherwise awesome.
