I think this is the place to ask this. If not, sorry, I intended to ask the right people.
I have a new dedicated server that came with CentOS that I put Apache, MySQL, and PHP on as well as webmin. I was wondering if there are any basic things I should look at (like "every server should have x on it"). Should I use webmin to update all the software packages it says there are updates for? I have used linux a bit and compiled kernels before but I am not really comfortable doing it on an install that I care if it messes up. Will webmin take care of that all by itself or should I leave it alone?
Note: This server is not being used right now so restarting it is not an issue.
