Or download latest debian package from And install using dpkg

sudo dpkg -i jenkins_1.413_all.deb

Additional Packages

Dont forget to install required packages to get code from Git repo and build with Apache Ant.

  • Git

sudo apt-get install git # (on older systems the package is called git-core)

  • Apache Ant

sudo apt-get install ant

Testing Environment

Make sure that you have configured TestingEnvironment correctly.

  • You can quick check this by verifying phpUnit version

phpunit --version

Should be 3.5.13 or greater.

  • And try to run phpUnit tests

phpunit -c phpunit.xml.nocoverage

Getting plugins
