Running Jenkins server from .war file might be convenient. But it is recommended to deploy GNU/Linux Continuous Integration (CI) server using these instructions.
# Add Debian package repository of Jenkins GPG key: $ wget -q -O - https://pkg.jenkins.io/debian-stable/jenkins.io.key | sudo apt-key add - # Then add the following entry to your/etc/apt/sources.list: $ echo deb http://pkg.jenkins.io/debian-stable binary/ | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jenkins.list # Update your local package index: $ sudo apt-get update # Install Jenkis server: $ sudo apt-get install jenkins # Start Jenkins service and verify its status: $ sudo systemctl start jenkins $ sudo systemctl status jenkins # Open http://localhost:8080 in your browser and copy paste in the secret password. # Follow the on screen instructions to create Jenkins server admin account $ sudo cat /var/lib/jenkins/secrets/initialAdminPassword # Open the ports 8080 through your firewall: $ sudo ufw allow 8080 $ sudo ufw status
Adding a monit service to monitor the Jenkins server is a good idea. Monit ensures that Jenkins server is restarted automatically when it crashes.
# Create a Jenkins monitoring file with following lines with: $ sudo nano /etc/monit/conf.d/jenkins check process jenkins with pidfile /var/run/jenkins/jenkins.pid start program = "/etc/init.d/jenkins start" stop program = "/etc/init.d/jenkins stop"
Also you'll need to configure mail server to send Jenkins build reports.
