Sometimes, the RAM memory becomes full. This usually occurs when an service uses too much memory while performing a heavy task.
When the server entirely runs out of memory, the Linux kernel activates a mechanism called the "OOM Killer". This mechanism finds the process that took up the most memory and kills it to free up RAM.
In such a situation, you are left without service, and it becomes shut down.

To restart the service, be logged in as "admin" on myVesta, and do the following two clicks:
