I am one a ubuntu 16.04 server.

A lot of the time I run code with phantom js I get the error 'phantomjs' executable needs to be in PATH.

Download the most recent selenium java bindings - 2.45. Then remove the 2.44 (or whatever you're using) from your library.

Then include the following in your code:

DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities();
