Jenkins is an open-source automation server. Jenkins is used for building and testing your software projects continuously making it easier for developers to integrate changes to the project, and making it easier for users to obtain a fresh build. This guide will show you how to deploy a Jenkins server using a SkySilk VPS.

How to set up a Jenkins server with SkySilk VPS in 9 Steps

If you want to restart the install process on your VM you can use the following command; 'turnkey-init'.

1. Deploy a SkySilk Jenkins VPS Template.

2. Login to your VPS. SSH into your VPS using root@ipaddress and the password you set in the SkySilk dashboard. If you are connecting from a Unix-like machine (Mac OS or Linux), or by using PuTTY with Windows then the command to connect is simply:

ssh [user]@[ip address]

where [user] is your username, typically root, and [ip address] is the IP address of the virtual machine.

# for example:

ssh root@204.44.81.xx
