Publish a website using Jenkins


To publish a website using Jenkins, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the Jenkins CI server on your machine.
  2. Install the Jenkins Git plugin, which allows Jenkins to pull code from a Git repository.
  3. Set up a Jenkins job for your website.
  4. In the job configuration, specify the Git repository that contains your website code.
  5. Set up a build trigger for the job, such as polling the repository for changes or triggering builds manually.
  6. In the job configuration, add a build step to run a script that builds and publishes your website.

Here is an example of a Jenkinsfile that defines a Jenkins job to build and publish a website:

pipeline { agent any stages { stage(‘Build’) { steps { // Run the build script for the website sh ‘./’ } } stage(‘Publish’) { steps { // Copy the built website to the web server sh ‘rsync -avz –delete –exclude=”.git” –exclude=”.gitignore” build/ /var/www/html/’ } } } }

This Jenkinsfile defines a pipeline with two stages: “Build” and “Publish”. The “Build” stage runs a script called that builds the website, and the “Publish” stage copies the built website to the web server using rsync.

To run this job, you can simply commit your changes to the Git repository and push them to the server. Jenkins will automatically detect the changes and trigger a build of the website.
