newbie to CentOS 6.6 trying to use Webmin File manager and cannot get to work tried downloading Java applet and installing it I do not see it as a plugin...I am using firefox version 31.6.o java version I have is jrel.8.0_45 I think that I installed in usr/java 

however if I do a java -version I get java version "1.7.0_79" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel- u79-b14) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.79-b02, mixed mode)

if there is a conflict how would I remove files not needed.

This is really not the best place to ask questions; there is a mailing list for Webmin at, and we also welcome questions like this in the Help! forum at here:

Please take future questions there.

The short answer is that you likely need to link the Java plugin into the plugins directory for your browser. I don't remember exactly how to do that; probably needs to be added in ~/.mozilla/plugins. And, the plugin seems to be named (you can probably use the locate command to find it: "locate").

So, for example, on my system, I'd probably do:

$ locate
$ ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_31/jre/lib/amd64/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/

Note that the second and third lines of that are showing that I have two versions of Java installed (I think it's the Oracle JDK and the JRE provided by Fedora). I picked the Oracle version to link.

It's possible to have multiple of java versions installed. They don't conflict.
