Our organization is planning to install Jenkins as a service on the SuseLinux operating system. Before, we proceed with the installation we are planning to customize the installation folder and the
default log folder location : var/log/jenkins/jenkins.log location to a specific location san/logs/jenkins/jenkins.log
We are following the below instructions for the installation and It would be much appreciated if anyone can help us in customizing the installation :
Execute the following steps to complete the installation of Jenkins in SuseLinux environment :
To begin the Jenkins installation in Suse,get the required packages from the Jenkins repository URL by executing the below command in putty session.
$ sudo zypper addrepo http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/opensuse/Jenkins
The above command will get the latest Jenkins repo from the official Jenkins website and place it under
/etc/zypp/jenkins.repo location on the build server.
Step2: To Install Jenkins execute the below command
sudo zypper install jenkins - This is where we are are bit confused. When we execute the below command, Jenkins is getting installed in the below locations :
1. /etc/init.d/jenkins - the actual service file
2. /var/logs/jenkins/jenkins.log - How to customize this location to /san/logs/jenkins/jenkins.log ?
3. /var/lib/jenkins is the installation folder - How to customize this location to /san/Jenkins
If a customization is required for multiple files, please list all the dependent files that needs to be modified before we install the jenkins
Please post if you have any additional questions.
