Hi all,

I have a ubuntu 14.04 x64 distribution on a Linode VPS with Apache 2.4.7 and mySQL server 5.5.

I would like to be able to reboot my server automatically every midnight (GMT - my server date is set to GMT).

Could anyone please assist? I have no experience with CRON or .sh scripts and I have only started using linux last month.

thanks in advance
