BlueQuartz Server Support

BlueQuartz is still the prefered control panel for thousands of web design companies, web hosting companies and developers alike.

Like any server that is connected to the public internet, it is critical that you keep the server secure. Todays web is more hostile than ever - with new software vulnerabilities and exploits being discovered daily. For these reasons, keeping software patched and up-to-date is very important. If you do not, you run the risk of having your BlueQuartz compromised. The server will likely become a spam relay with the websites defaced.

Keeping your BlueQuartz server up to date

Keeping your serverBlueQuartz server patched and sercure is managed using the package update tool YUM.  YUM manages dependancy resolution, downloads any software updates including recursive dependancies that are required to updated.

Whilst this is a very effective way of keeping the software updated, there are several areas that should still have regular maintenance.
