    how to centos 6.9 intel cpu meltdown patch for godaddy Dedicated server?

    godaddy server setting problem.JPG

     

    hello.
    I am using Ancient Dedicated Server Hosting.
    The Linux information is as follows.
    Version: CentOS release 6.9 (Final)
    Kernel: 2.6.32-042stab111.11

     

    I've had one problem, and I've research on it for a week but I could not fix it.
    If someone is aware of this issue, please advise.

    I have installed the intel Meltdown CPU patch distributed for CentOS 6.9.
    I installed the kernel version 696.18.7.el6 with the yum command and rebooted the server.


    if i input 'yum info kernel' command, it is confirmed as installed state.
    if i input 'rpm -qa kernel' command, it is confirmed as installed state.

     

    But,

    if i input 'last reboot' command, it is showed older kernel booted state.
    if i input 'uname -r' command, it is showed older kernel booted state.

     

    I thought something was wrong and tried to check the grub information but the grub.conf file does not exist on the server.

    I would like to ask two questions.
    How do I boot to a new kernel?
    how to use grub.conf from the godaddy Dedicated server?

    If someone knows this workaround, please advise me.
    Thank you.
