================================ Jenkins installation environment ================================ Introduction ~~~~~~~~~~~~ This repository provides a quick installation method for Jenkins on a Linux system (only tested with Ubuntu though). The provided toolset is certainly not applicable in all situations but it may help the one or the other to get a quick Jenkins installation up and running. Requirements ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Before using this repostiory you need to have the following software installed: - Make - Java (Sun JDK) Installation ~~~~~~~~~~~~ In order to allow for local configuration settings you need to copy the distributed configuration file first: cp ./etc/jenkins.local.dist ./etc/jenkins.local Now you can edit ./etc/jenkins.local and override any settings from ./etc/jenkins in there. You will find some suggestions in ./etc/jenkins.local. It is most likely that you would want to fix the user name used to run the jenkins server. The default is "jenkins" which might not exist on your system. Especially for test installations you should simply set JENKINS_USER to your own user name. Once the configuration has been set you can simply run make install followed by make start You should be able to connect to http://localhost:8080 now. Usage ~~~~~ 1. Starting / Stopping the server make start should fire the server up make stop should kill the server. 2. Installing what Jenkins upstream provides as "latest" packages: make install-latest These are not necessary the "latest" packages released and there may be updates available. But you will be notified of that whithin the Jenkins management console. Uninstall ~~~~~~~~~ Simply run make stop followed by make clean This should fully remove the Jenkins server.
