See how easily you can schedule upgrades for your Linux servers with Webmin.

I’ve been a fan of Webmin for years. Although there are newer, easier web-based administration tools available, Webmin happens to be one of the more mature and robust on the market. With a modular system that makes it easy to install new capabilities, there’s very little Webmin can do. And given much of its capability is already baked in, you can quickly install the software and get to work.

One very important task you can undertake with Webmin is upgrading the software installed on the server. Even better, you can schedule those upgrades for such a time when users won’t be logged in and crucial services are needed.

That’s exactly what I’m going to show you how to do.
