To protect yourself from security vulnerabilities, you must patch your server regularly. Developing a monthly or weekly habit of performing this simple task can save you a lot of grief and hassle later on.
Note: Managed Hosting and Assisted Service Plan customers do not need to patch their own servers.
The process to patch your server depends on what operating system your server uses:
Fedora or Cent OS
- Connect to your server via RDC (more info).
- From the Start menu, select Control Panel.
- Click Windows Update.
- Click Check for Updates, and then complete the steps to update your server.
