What is Jenkins?

Jenkins is an extendable open source continuous integration server.

Install Jenkins on Redhat

# sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/jenkins.repo http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/redhat/jenkins.repo
# sudo rpm --import http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/redhat/jenkins-ci.org.key
# yum install jenkins

Modify Config file to select port you want it to run on

# nano -w /etc/sysconfig/jenkins

Start Jenkins

# /etc/init.d/jenkins start

Now you can start stop jenkins like this

root@somebox-> service jenkins stop
Shutting down Jenkins                                      [  OK  ]
root@somebox-> service jenkins start
Starting Jenkins                                           [  OK  ]
