I am running a game server from my home for my friends and I to play on. My server does stay up 24/7 because it is now a public server. My server runs for a few hours or days, and then randomly no matter what I do I can't wake the screen to access command line and the server is offline. Thanks any help is appreciated.

    So you mean it has hung, not turned ( the power ) off? – psusi Nov 9 '17 at 2:45
  • I am unsure but I'll go with yes. The active power light is on but ssh in doesn't work and can't wake it without a hard restart. If that is what hung is then yes. – Vladipiggy Nov 9 '17 at 11:51
  • Login to the server (when it's working again), execute journalctl -b -1 --catalog --pager-end to see the last screenful of error messages before the last reboot. – waltinator Nov 10 '17 at 5:07
  • I did that but it said "Specifying boot ID has no effect, no persistent journal was found" – Vladipiggy Nov 10 '17 at 22:24
