Install Jenkins on Ubuntu 20.04

Install Jenkins on Ubuntu 20.04

Jenkins is an open-source CI/CD (Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery) automation server built in Java.

In this tutorial, I will show how to install Jenkins on Ubuntu-20.04, 18.04.

Jenkins requires Java, so firstly it needs to install OpenJDK-8 JRE/JDK (Java Runtime Environment and Java Development Kit).

Check if Java is installed and what is the version:

$ java -version

Install OpenJDK-8 JRE/JDK on Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk openjdk-8-jre

Install Jenkins on Ubuntu

Install the latest stable Jenkins version on Ubuntu:

$ wget -q -O - https://pkg.jenkins.io/debian/jenkins-ci.org.key | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo sh -c 'echo deb http://pkg.jenkins.io/debian-stable binary/ > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jenkins.list'
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install jenkins

As only Jenkins is installed on Ubuntu, it will be started and added to auto-start automatically.
