where to set the context path - jenkins

I’m trying to set me Jenkins server to appear at http://myhost/jenkins, It works, but the Jenkins website thinks http://myhost/ is the jenkins/ root. I can't figure out where to set the context path.

Add prefix attribute to /etc/default/jenkins file:

JENKINS_ARGS="--webroot=/var/cache/jenkins/war --prefix=/jenkins --httpPort=$HTTP_PORT --ajp13Port=$AJP_PORT

Configure your web server (e.g. - nginx) to redirect /jenkins to localhost:8080;

Put this into /etc/apache2/other/jenkins.conf:

ProxyPass         /jenkins  http://localhost:8009/jenkins
ProxyPassReverse  /jenkins  http://localhost:8009/jenkins
ProxyRequests     Off
<Proxy http://localhost:8009/jenkins*>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from

Then execute these commands:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/org.jenkins-ci httpPort 8009
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/org.jenkins-ci prefix /jenkins
sudo launchctl stop org.jenkins-ci
