Hi@akhtar,

By default Jenkins home directory is set to /var/lib/jenkins folder. But if you want to change Jenkins home directory then you have to use root user. Follow the below given steps.

  • Open Jenkins configuration file.
$ vi /etc/sysconfig/jenins
  • Change Jenkins home directory and Jenkins user as root.

  • Restart Jenkins service.

$ systemctl restart jenkins
