How to start Jenkins on a different port rather than 8080?

I am facing an error every time I start Jenkins on the 8080 port. Is there a way to run the same Jenkins instance on another port?

This is simple, use the following command:

java -jar jenkins.war --httpPort='xyz'

For https,

java -jar jenkins.war --httpsPort='xyz'


Finally, restart the service, this should change the port permanently.

In case you want to change the default jenkins port on Linux,

  • You can go to /etc/default/jenkins  

  • add --httpPort=9999 or whatever port to JENKINS_ARGS.

  • Then you should restart Jenkins with sudo service jenkins restart.
