I’m planning to update my WSE ver 4.7.7 running on AWS EC2 (byol) on a c3-2xlarge instance WSE 4.8.5.
I am aware that the new version of WSE requires OpenJDK Java SE JRE 9.0.4 to work.
Because I was uncertain on how to install the new version of Java, I reached out for some technical help and was told that my OS is too old and that JRE 9 cannot be installed and therefore my instance cannot be upgraded
I have been running this instance in a production environment for many years and have performed many updates since 4,.4.0 versions without issues
It would cause my a lot of consternation and grief if I were to have to abandon this server and have to start from scratch as it is configured for many vHosts and many custom settings
Is it possible that the advice I was given is incorrect ?
I would appreciate receiving your advice
