How to Keep Your Servers Updated

DigitalOcean makes it possible for you to run as many droplets as you need for a project with one click. However, it’s more straightforward to deploy a server than it is to maintain one, and as you scale up your infrastructure, and droplets end up having longer project lifespans than you originally envisioned, you may find that you have some unanswered questions about maintenance. There are many steps you can take to ensure your servers will continue to work securely without future intervention.
