FreePBX FreePBX 14.0.16.3 - Modules up to date, what about YUM Updates?


(Canada) #1

Hello all, my module updates happen automatically, and I am on FreePBX Version 14.0.16.3. I have 315 System updates in the wing:
±-----------------------------------------------------------+
| There are 315 System updates available. |
| Run yum update to update them. |

I see so many mixed answers on how often one should do updates, Would YUM updates ever upgrade to a full version update (Like 15), or would these updates all fall within the 14.XX.XX realm? Thanks in advance.

yum update will not upgrade you to FreePBX 15

Some yum updates are pretty necessary in my experience. For instance, your access to intrusion detection in the GUI could hiccup if “yum update sysadmin” isn’t up to date.

If you’re running the FreePBX Distro, you should generally run yum updates at about the same schedule as you run module updates. FreePBX will never get a major version upgrade automatically.

Okay, so I should “Probably” run Yum Update this weekend, and update this system. Is just the command “yum update” okay? as it suggests…I am leary because I’ve worked so many years with Linux, and sometimes I get weird libraries in updates that break things…but I need to have some faith.
