Best Practices - Production Server Setup?? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

What are the best practices to setup a Linux Production Server? Do you need to install the GCC compiler? If you don't install it, then how does the production environment keep up with the latest patches? How are these issues handled in the production environment? Thank you in advance for any pointers or information. BT...

    Default Best Practices - Production Server Setup??

    What are the best practices to setup a Linux Production Server?

    Do you need to install the GCC compiler? If you don't install it, then how
    does the production environment keep up with the latest patches?

    How are these issues handled in the production environment?

    Thank you in advance for any pointers or information.

    Depends on the system, if you want to run some db like oracle, you will
    need a compiler to even install it. If you don't need it, don't install
    it, the fewer packages you have, the less you need to update.
     

    You don't build packages on every system, you use one/two development
    system where you build own and test vendor packages before upgrading
    them on production systems.

    Good luck
