Java issues with KVM console on older dedicated servers

If you've purchased an older server, you may encounter issues using newer Java with it.

In the Java error box, you can click the Details button, followed by the Wrapped Exception tab, where you may see messages like the following: PKIX path validation failed: denyAfter constraint check failed: SHA1 used with Constraint date: Mon Dec 31 19:00:00 EST 2018 The server selected protocol version TLS10 is not accepted by client preferences [TLS12]

This is not an exhaustive list. The point is to convey that there will be responses that need to be mitigated. 

We recommend using Java 8u11 available here: - please make sure you download 8u11 and not 8u112 or anything else on the page, and also make sure you download Runtime Environment, not Development Kit or anything else on the page.
