Install Jenkins using Docker (Draft) - Manual

Step 1 of 7

Install Jenkins Docker Container

Install Latest Jenkins Container exposing the dashboard port 8080 with this commmand. docker run -d -u root --name jenkins \ -p 8080:8080 -p 50000:50000 \ -v /root/jenkins_latest:/var/jenkins_home \ jenkins:latest

All plugins and configurations get persisted to the host (ssh [email protected]) at _/root/jenkins_latest. Port 8080 opens the web dashboard, 50000 is used to communicate with other Jenkins agents. Finally, the image has an alpine base to reduce the size footprint.
