How do I update my Linux VPS packages?

You'll need to run a yum update to update the packages on your Linux install. 


1. You'll need to login to SSH, this can either be done via the console in the client area or using a SSH agent such as Putty then logging in with your credentials. 


2. Once you're logged in please run the below command. This will begin downloading the required files. 

- yum update


3. After the server has finished downloading the package updates you'll be asked if you'd like to continue. Please enter the below command and hit enter. 

- y


4. Shortly your update should be finished.
