Always Update Your Virtual Server


Updating your Virtual Server is a must procedure to ensure that you’ll get the latest update and patches. Almost all of the security problems we encounter on our Virtual Server gets easily fixed by performing an application update.

In the video, I used Yum command’s “yum update” to instruct CentOS to download the latest updates.

YUM works better than RPM since YUM automatically download, install or even update related applications that will be used by the app you are installing/updating. Command works with CentOS, RedHat family and Fedora Core.

For lazy folks, you can perform a daily update command via cron.
