The objective is to install Jenkins on Debian 9.

- $ – requires given linux commands to be executed as a regular non-privileged user
Inlcude Jenkins APT repository
First step is to include Jenkins APT repository and key. Let’s start by adding a new key:
# wget -q -O - http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/debian-stable/jenkins-ci.org.key | apt-key add OK
Next, add a repository. Here we have two options. First, we can add a stable LTS Jenkins repository:
# echo "deb http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/debian-stable binary/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jenkins.list
Another option is to inlcude latest Jenkins version repository:
# echo "deb http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/debian binary/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jenkins.list
With that done, update repository index:
# apt update
Now, that APT repositories are in place, the installation of Jenkins is rather simple one-liner:
# apt install jenkins
Jenkins is now installed. Rertieve your initial Jenkins password:
# cat /var/lib/jenkins/secrets/initialAdminPassword b9b1649e223843e29cf17812a2322a3f
Once you have your password, navigate your browser to
http://jenkins-server-IP:8080 and proceed with additional wizard customisation.
