Recently i configured a business website hosting server with Plesk parallel panel for my client and I was using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS but there I found default java is not install on the server . So I have written post for installation of java 8 through different methods of PPA.
In this article I am going to install java latest version 8 ( JDK 8u66 ) on ubuntu server . Here I will use JAVA PPA repository method for java install. Webupd8 Organisation manage the PPA Repository .
Install JAVA 8 ( JDK 8u72 ) via PPA :
Add webupd8team PPA Repository on the server and Run below command for add repo.
#sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
After run the command, I have got one issue i.e add-apt-repository command not found on the ubuntu server. Here I have to install add-apt-repository command through this post . Click Here
Now Run the again above command for add repo. After that update packages.
# sudo apt-get update # sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
