The process to patch your server depends on what operating system your server uses:

AlmaLinux/Cent OS/Fedora

  1. Connect to your server via SSH (more info).
  2. Switch to the root user (more info).
  3. Run the following:
    yum clean all
    yum update

Ubuntu

Windows Server

  1. Connect to your server via RDC (more info).
  2. From the Start menu, select Settings.
  3. Select Updates & Security > Windows Update.
