I had installed jenkins and builds were working fine.
Suddenly it stopped working. There is nothing in logs
I tried starting it, with the following command :-
sudo /etc/init.d/jenkins start
but still it’s not running
root@localhost:$# service jenkins restart * Restarting Jenkins Continuous Integration Server jenkins [ OK ] root@localhost:$# service jenkins status Jenkins Continuous Integration Server is not running
After some googling I was able to get to run jenkins with the foll command :-
-Djava.awt.headless=true -jar /usr/share/jenkins/jenkins.war –webroot=/var/cache/jenkins/war –httpPort=8080
Still not able to get why the conventional Jenkins start command is not working. I’m working on ubuntu 14.04 version. So maybe there is some issue with Jenkins-Linux combination. To get it working is enough for the time being!
