    Can someone help me? I haven't been running LilyPad for a really long time since I haven't been able to install the right version of Java, and even when I tried using Matt's tutorial it doesn't work. Please help? :)

    If you go to oracle's website you can find an RPM for Oracle Java. Then just use
    Code (text):

    rpm -i <filename>
    ... to install it.

    How about

    Code (text):
    yum install java7

    @sgtcaze that isn't working for me, I uninstalled Java then tried that, worked fine until I tried using a java command - java is not registered xP

    @Coelho trying that right now, uploading at 10% :p

    @boboman13 That's strange. That command has worked for me on lots of vps hosts, dedicated machines etc.

    I just got the server-jre-7u25-linux-x64.tar.gz into my server, so I tried unzipping it but now I can't find the .rpm file. Am I missing something? Did I do something wrong?

    EDIT: Wait nevermind! Fixed it! Thank you guys for the help! If someone wants to close this they can. After unzipping the file, I just renamed it to the old Java installation which kept the old Java config file ok! Thanks for the help :D
