Lecture: Connecting to and patching our server
0:00 I wanna say ssh root@ that address. Obviously, you'd probably put some kind of domain name there. But first time it'll say: you have never been here,
0:09 are you sure you want to exchange your ssh keys with them? Yes, and just like that, we're in. So the very first time you see,
0:17 like, this warning and whatnot and it says, you know, you really should do "apt update" and then "apt upgrade". This is, check for updates, apt update,
0:27 and then apt upgrade is apply those updates. And if you've ever put anything on the Internet,
0:32 you want to know, you know that you need to patch it right away like here. If we log out and then log back in, notice
0:40 it has 18 security problems. That's not good. So let's go and just upgrade it right now.
0:48 Oh, and I believe it's like checking for its own updates the first time it came to life. So let's see how long this'll take. Here we go,
0:58 it was still doing like some background stuff with the upgrade system. Alright, so it should be up to date, or ready to update. When you already
1:05 see these linux headers, that means there's a new kernel upgrade as well.
1:13 Okay, that took a moment, because there's an insane number of updates to apply, but no big deal. Now, if we log out and just log back in,
1:21 you'll see that a system restart is required. Not always the case when you apply updates that that's true.
1:26 But when do a kernel upgrade or major things, it is. So we'll just have to reboot. Wait about 5 to 10 seconds,
1:33 and our machine should be completely up and running and ready for us to configure as
1:38 our web server. Perfect, so here we have our web server up and running not a web server yet, it's gonna be made into one.
1:45 But we have our Linux server running on the Internet safely because we've applied the patches.
1:50 We still need to do things like set up firewall rules and other types of stuff to make it more safe.
1:56 But it's a good thing to have here running, that we can start working with and configuring, and we'll do that throughout this chapter.
