let me keep it short, since you’re super busy with your daily tasks. Assuming you’ve logged into your server with bash

  1. Create a directory that will hold your jenkins content (in host)
# I'll keep it as "jenkins", you can use "jenkins_home" if you wishmkdir -p $HOME/jenkins

2. Start your jenkins image

# if you're using other names, replace $HOME/jenkins with your choice
# in case you want to change port, use this
# -e JENKINS_OPTS="--httpPort=80" (remember to change 8080:8080 below to 80:80)
docker container run \
--name jenkins \
-p 8080:8080 -p 50000:50000 \
-v $HOME/jenkins:/var/jenkins_home \
-d \

3. Write down the password you see on your screen

4. Open your browser and access http://YOUR-SERVER-IP:8080 and follow the steps

2. Log in into jenkins container

#using host's root with -u 0docker container exec -u 0 -it jenkins bash

3. Download the update with the address you copied in step 1

# inside the container, using 2.89.2 as examplewget

4. Move it to the correct place

mv ./jenkins.war /usr/share/jenkins

5. Change permission (thanks Buvanesh Kumar)

chown jenkins:jenkins /usr/share/jenkins/jenkins.war (updated)

6. Exit container and restart the container

# exit contaienr (inside container)
# restart container (from your server)
docker container restart jenkins

In case if you see a deprecated protocols: JNLP-connect, JNLP2-connect warning, here’s what you can do
