Recommended server maintenance tasks for typical WeBWorK servers. Please note that these server maintenance tasks are WeBWorK specific. That is, they are additional tasks a system administrator should consider doing because of running WeBWorK on the server.

Warning : As any professional system administrator knows, proper server maintenance requires regular attention to very many sub-systems, not just WeBWorK. Faculty who run production WeBWorK servers are very strongly advised to either find a sysadmin who can help you, or to read up on system administration.
