Unless you know more about your system we could only guess an answer.

First find out if the server supports live memory add maybe.

To shut down a system one tends to properly stop applications. Database and some other apps may require detailed knowledge to correctly stop it.

Then one does a normal shutdown via some command or gui.

Then to power up you'd reverse the process. Again noting that some apps may need special steps to properly start them.

It may be possible to simply add more swap space but we also don't know what is going on. If this system has run properly for 5 years and never shut down, I'd think it should power back up. Be sure to make a backup of the data before you attempt this.
