Change Jenkins Port on Linux

In this tutorial i will be showing you how to change Jenkins 8080 to Jenkins 80 / 443 or any other port.

First you have to be sure that Apache HTTPD is installed and running and then open httpd.conf file and use below configuration.

ProxyPass -- Maps remote servers into the local server URL-space.
nocanon -- URL path "raw" to the backend.
ProxyPassReverse -- Adjusts the URL in HTTP response headers sent from a reverse proxied server.
prxyrequests -- Enables forward (standard) proxy requests
AllowEncodedSlashes -- Determines whether encoded path separators in URLs are allowed to be passed through

vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

ProxyPass /jenkins http://localhost:8080/jenkins nocanon
ProxyPassReverse /jenkins http://localhost:8080/jenkins
ProxyRequests Off
AllowEncodedSlashes NoDecode

<Proxy http://localhost:8080/jenkins*>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all


Add in the end of file "JENKINS_ARGS="--prefix=/jenkins" which means that this is the name of folder which added in above httpd

vi /etc/sysconfig/jenkins

If you selinux is enabled then you need to run the below commands:

setsebool httpd_can_network_connect true
setsebool httpd_can_network_connect 1

Restart both Jenkins and Apache services

systemctl restart jenkins
systemctl restart httpd
