Docker and Jenkins

How easy is it to deploy Jenkins using Docker?  On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say something between 2 – 4.

Here are the quick steps you can follow (along with links) to help you get the job done!

  1. First and foremost, you need to get Docker installed on your server.  Here is a good link I would recommend.
  2. Next you will want to go to the Docker Store and search for Jenkins.
  3. Click on the “1” returned result
  4. Follow the instructions on the page to pull the image and run your Jenkins container
  5. I would recommend persisting your Jenkins data by specifying a volume when you start up\run the Docker Jenkins container.(-v /your/home:/var/jenkins_home)
    • -v, –volume=[host-src:]container-dest[:<options>]: Bind mount a volume
