Re: file corruption

Cause? I'd say that would be the improper shutdown.

Did fsck run at boot? If not, unmount the filesystem and run it to verify it's integrity.

Re: file corruption

Impropoer shutdown can currupt the files that would lead in crashing of server (which is rare in Linux server )so you may need to run fsck to check integrity and/or restore from backup.
