If you need to transport the system to a different location (e.g., hosting center), or otherwise power down the system safely, proceed as follows:
- Wait until the system finishes booting.
- Log in as root.
- Type poweroff.
- Wait until either the system powers down on its own, or the message “The operating system has halted” appears, and then power off the server if it was not done automatically.
