Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended specifically for updating Bash on Red Hat and CentOS.
  • I’ll be working from both a Liquid Web Core Managed CentOS 6 server and a Liquid Web Self Managed CentOS 7 server, and I’ll be logged in as root.

Clean-Up Yum

yum clean all

Update Bash

yum -y update bash

yum -y update
