Try changing the port,


If changing the ports did not solve the problem, then the error is mostly coming from the version of Java installed,

Updating java-1.7.0-openjdk to java-1.8.0-openjdk will do the trick

Use the following command to install java 8

sudo yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk

Make sure you remove the older version of java. Use the following command to do so.

sudo yum remove java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64

Finally, restart jenkins service, use the following command

sudo service jenkins restart
