Update Jenkins on Ubuntu

Posted by in IT, Tutorial

I’ve got an installation of Jenkins on a Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS which I needed to update. In order to do so I did the following:

  1. Download the new version (2.107 at the moment of writing this post). In /home/user/backup/ execute:

  2. Backup the old version (Jenkins war is installed in /usr/share/jenkins):

  3. Overwrite the old jenkins.war:

  4. Restart jenkins

Now, you’re all set and you can start updating the plugins.
