Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and operates separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that might have quite a lot of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to employ the newest version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system overall and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could directly impact the performance of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their newest versions require an updated Operating System to be able to operate effectively, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
