How to Install Jenkins on Ubuntu 19.04

Jenkins is a Java based software which can be installed from the Ubuntu packages. Jenkins is mainly used for Continues Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI CD). On this tutorial, we will install Jenkins on Ubuntu 19.04.

Before you start, please prepare yourself. You have Ubuntu 19.04 installed on your PC/Laptop/Server. Java 8 is already installed.

Prepare Firewall Rules for Jenkins

Jenkins uses a custom port 8080 to run, so you need to create a firewall to all access to this port.

Go to VPC Network >> Firewall rules and click Create Firewall rules.

  • In Name enter jenkins
  • In Targets select All instances in the network
  • In Source filter select IP ranges
  • In Source IP ranges enter
  • In Protocols and ports check TCP and enter 8080
  • Click Create.

Installing Jenkins

To install latest version of Jenkins, add the repository key to the system and add the repository address to the sources list.

sudo wget -q -O - | 
sudo apt-key add - sudo sh -c 'echo deb binary/ > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jenkins.list'

Now you can update and install Jenkins.

sudo apt update 
sudo apt install jenkins

Once the installation is complete you can start Jenkins using the following command.sudo systemctl start jenkins

You can also view the status of Jenkins using this command.

sudo systemctl status jenkins

If Jenkins is started successfully you will get a response similar to this.

Setting Jenkins

Once everything is done you can open your browser and enter your IP address followed by the Jenkins port 8080. The format will be like this http://ip_address:8080

You will see the Unlock screen where you need to type the password to unlock Jenkins.

  • Execute the following command to get the password. sudo cat /var/lib/jenkins/secrets/initialAdminPassword
  • Copy the password and paste it in the Administrator password field to unlock and start the setup.
  • Click Install suggested plugins option to start the installation immediately.
