Updating the FreePBX 13 Operating System (CentOS 6.X)


  • Service Provider

    Like everything else, FreePBX has a base operating system, and like everything else it needs to be updated.

    The operating system underneath of FreePBX 13 is basically a customized CentOS 6. This makes keeping it up to date very simple.

    You simple use the built in package manager yum to run updates and because of the customized repositories used, it should always be a very safe process.

    As I recently did everything, there are no updates pending, but you can look at any CentOS example for what this looks like when you have updates.

    [[email protected] ~]# yum -y update
