How to schedule automated restarts

It's always a good idea to have your server automatically restart at a set interval to keep things fresh, and for your server to reclaim memory that gets used up by plugins that have small memory leaks.
 
1. Log into the Multicraft panel
2. On the left-hand side, menu go to Advanced > Scheduled Tasks
3. Click on New Task
4. In the name box put something like Restart
5. Click on the text with data and time, then use little calendar popup to select when you want your server to restart. The times should be in UTC. You can use this tool here: http://everytimezone.com/ to convert to your own timezone.
6. Check the Interval box, and select how often you want your server to restart. (every 12 hours should work in most cases)
7. Using the 'Command' drop-down menu select Restart
8. Click Create
 
If you want to add a warning before the restart, you can do that by following the steps below.
1. Do as you did for steps 1 - 3 above
2. In the name box put something like Restart Warning
3. Click on the text with date and time, then use little calendar popup to select time when you want your warnings to come up. For example, if you set your restart time at 16:00 and want a warning that is one minute before the restart, set the time to 15:59 (one minute before the restart)
4. Check the Interval box and set the same time interval that you have set for your restart task.
5. Using the Command drop-down menu select Admin Say
6. In the Arguments text box type in your warning message such as "The server will auto restart in one minute! Please be prepared to log out"
7. Click Create
