How to Update your Server

Steps for Properly Updating your Server:

The simplest way to update your CentOS/RHEL Operating System is to run the following command:

yum update -y


Things to consider are the following:

  1. Do NOT end this task early as you may stop the update during a kernel update which may cause your Operating System to not boot properly when rebooted.
  2. You can drop the -y portion of the review each update before proceeding. The -y portion skips these checks.
