Update Ioncube loader files
We recently came across a server which had an outdated ioncube load running, follow below…
I usually download the rpm or source from Java.com and install it manually but this time around it just wouldn’t work. So this is the alternative, read: supported way, of installing Java JDK 1.8.
Issue yum list *jdk* to get a list of what’s available:
To install, issue: yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel
To verify installation, issue: java -version
This is what you should see to signal a successful install.
