The automatic deployment method will provide you a full featured Continuous Integration system with Jenkins and jenkins-debian-glue within just a few minutes, assuming that you have neither of them installed nor configured.

The deployment script expects

with >=512MB RAM and >=2GB of free disk space.

Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS, 13.04, 14.04 LTS + 15.04 on Amazon EC2 are known to work fine out of the box.
Debian AMIs are known to work fine as well (squeeze >=6.0.7, wheezy, jessie)
The Debian (wheezy) images on Google Compute Engine are known to work fine out of the box.

All you need to do to automatically deploy the stack is execute the following two commands:

wget --no-check-certificate
sudo bash ./ your_password

This will take ~5 minutes (depending on network and disk speed).

After installation finished successfully you'll notice:

Now point your browser to http://$SERVER_IP:8080

Visiting your browser should give you the following screen:

Now login with username jenkins-debian-glue and the password you set in the commandline ('your_password' in the example above).

Do not forget to change your password! Visit http://$SERVER_IP:8080/user/jenkins-debian-glue/configure to change it.

Return to the start page again and go to the jenkins-debian-glue-source Jenkins job and select Build now. A few seconds later the job should be finished and automatically triggers the jenkins-debian-glue-binaries and jenkins-debian-glue-piuparts Jenkins jobs. This will take a while for its first run (setting up the cowbuilder environment for you).

Once the jenkins-debian-glue-binaries Jenkins job has finished as well you should have Jenkins jobs marked as blue (AKA success):

Problems? Check out the build console log which should be available at http://$SERVER_IP:8080/job/jenkins-debian-glue-binaries/architecture=amd64/lastBuild/console

Well done - that's it! You have your own Debian packages of jenkins-debian-glue now.

Execute sudo repository_checker --list-repos jenkins-debian-glue to get a listing of Debian packages inside the jenkins-debian-glue repository, which is available in /srv/repository. Now you have everything to add your own Debian packages and enjoy the benefits of Continuous Integration.
