How to install CentOS Linux updates on a VPS

You can install CentOS updates on your VPS yourself.

We recommend you create a backup before performing any updates just in case. 

It's rare for there to be a problem but you want to have a backup to restore from just in case.

There are two ways you can install CentOS updates on your VPS.

  1. In the Customer Control Panel click on the Update OS button under the VPS Management tab

  2. SSH to your VPS and enter command:  yum update

    Yum will display a list of packages to be installed and prompt you to enter Y to proceed.

    Once you enter Y yum will install the updates.

Note: Our Linux VPS come with yum already installed.
