Another part of effective Linux server management involves making consistent backups. While the server may be home to a lot of common files, they are more often used to host websites and as storage for important documents. If the Linux server crashes, then it can mean the permanent deletion of all those files. Consistent backups may keep this from happening, because it will store the server’s files somewhere else, leaving them unaffected by the crash.
Below tasks will be performed on request only.
- Clean logs every month
- Complete server scan every month for vulnerability
- Update your server every month ( manual update including kernel )
