Filemaker Server 11 and Mac OS 10.8.x

We need to reinstall Filemaker Server 11. I have a Mac running a clean reinstall of Mac OS 10.8.5 (which is the highest FMS 11 supports, I believe). I've been trying my best to get it to work but I just cannot seem to find a readily available Java installation which works with FMS 11. It seems that Apple's 2015-001 update should do the trick (it installs a Java 6 SE runtime) but it I get an error when the admin console attempts to launch. Does anyone have real world experience attempting to install FMS 11 on a Mac this year? I've tried all the advice I could find scattered across the internet but most of those posts are old and I'm not sure the Java available now is the same as it was back then. (For example, Apple's 2015-001 doesn't install a Java Preferences Pane, which the older versions used to have I believe).
