on the command prompt type crontab -e

then put 05 01 * * * yum update

which will update your system at 01:05 AM every night...
I suggest you read more about crontab using man crontab since it is an important one if you are using linux...

I think you should use the -y option so yum does not expect any user interaction, so your cron entry should be:

05 01 * * * yum update -y

Not sure but I THINK this is already set up in services. System->Admin->Server Setting->Services and yum is at the bottom of the list.

that might be a feature build in to some softwares, also if you are using the graphical Package Update Manager, it might do it that way -- forgive me i never tried the graphical stuff...

i think it'll be better to do the 'crontab way' , also please do not forget to add -y like miguel220369 said....thnx for reminding...
