Not that I would advise it, but setting up a cron job would be a good way to do it.

Any particular reason for rebooting? These servers are meant to stay up 24/7 unless you need to do some type of hardware or software maintenance.

Is it an test server? handled only by single user?

Anyway , you can do with the help of cron.

Re: how to auto reboot system

you can edit the cron tab by using
#crontab -e
and specify the time you want to reboot the server with command
#shutdown -r -t 0

30 01 * * * shutdown -r -y 60
This reboots the system at 0130 each day.

Re: how to auto reboot system

you can specify that in the cron table in the date field, if you set it to one, that means the fist day on each month the command with be executed,
Cron table is arranged from left to right as below
min(0-59) hours(0-32) date(#1-31 ) month(month#1-12) day(week #0-6)
