well you have physical access so
remove the leftover .pid files you left on the system from hard crashing it

removing the .pid files

is it going to solve the problem by removing the .pid files and how do i remove the files.

when i look at the services using service --status-all the anti virus process is listed as nailsdctl: daemon is not running

i am asking this because if i start the antivirus back then the server hangs same time every night and i have to do a restart from the power button.

well i have never used mcafee on a linux install
( ClamAV normally finds more and finds them sooner than Norton or McAfee )

what is the errors you are getting in the logs ?
If nailsdctl is not starting , there will be a log of it

dose it manually restart ?
Code:
su -
service nailsdctl restart

Broken pipes can indicate that a client or server is down.

Not knowing much about whatever

I guess you're running a backup at midnight that brings something down. And one of your processes is communicating with that 'something'.

So if you bring process A down (and process B assumes connectivity with process A), you also have to stop process B (and actually before you stop process A).

It's just a thought triggered by the fact that it starts at midnight, so checking your cron might be a place to look for the problem.
