It is very simple to install Java 8 on our VNC plans. First, you'll need to connect via SSH, your SSH port is 6000 if you're on a plan that can use the webviewer.
If you do not know how then you can follow the tutorial available here: https://my.hostcram.com/plugin/support_manager/knowledgebase/view/30/how-to-connect-to-your-vps-for-the-first-time-via-ssh/6/
The commands you'd need to run in the terminal to install the software are:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common -y
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
// Verify it's installed.
If you get errors regarding "sudo" then please run this command: apt-get install sudo
That should cover it, as always if you have issues please contact our support.
