Jenkins : Thanks for using Windows Installer

This page is a landing page for those who have installed Jenkins via its Windows installer

Changing boot configuration

By default, your Jenkins runs at http://localhost:8080/. This can be changed by editing jenkins.xml, which is located in your installation directory. This file is also the place to change other boot configuration parameters, such as JVM options, HTTPS setup, etc.

Starting/stopping the service

Jenkins is installed as a Windows service, and it is configured to start automatically upon boot. To start/stop them manually, use the service manager from the control panel, or the sc command line tool.

Inheriting your existing Hudson/Jenkins installation

If you'd like your new installation to take over your existing Jenkins/Hudson data, copy your old data directory into the new JENKINS_HOME directory.
