In this guide we will go through how you can start the virtual server in «Recovery mode», and then run FSCK on the server's hard drive(s).
The guide only applies for Linux based virtual servers. Commands used are written like this: «command», where «» is not included when command is actually used.
Because of various reasons, a file system can become corrupt, and if that happens you will have problems using the server like normal. To fix this, you can run FSCK on the hard drive(s) that has a corrupt file system.
You start by rebooting the virtual server into what is called «Recovery mode». Basically, the server is rebooted with an operating system that is loaded to the memory on the server, and you can access the server via «console» in the control panel or via SSH towards the server's IP address. When the server is started in «recovery mode», the hard drives will not be «mounted», which means that we can perform advanced operations on it that usually would not be possible.
Click «Yes» to confirm that the server should be rebooted into «Recovery mode».
When you are done, you close «Console»/disconnect from SSH and restart the server.
We have now seen how to fix a corrupt file system by using «FSCK».
