Thread: Upgrading Java

  1. #1

    Default Upgrading Java

    I've tried every youtube tutorial and maybe every other tutorial on the web and some of them I just don't get, I've managed to get as far as getting a folder to appear in my downloads folder called jre1.6.0_21 using some commands in the terminal. But I have no idea what to do next. Because when i go to the Java site to verify my version it gives me.

    Oops! You don't have the recommended Java installed.
    Your Java version is Version 6 Update 18. Please click the button below to get the recommended Java for your computer.

    NOTE: If you recently completed your Java software installation, you may need to restart your browser (close all browser windows and re-open) before verifying your installation.


    Anyone have any idea what to do? thanks
