jenkins reconfiguration

was setting up jenkins

added user “admin” then figured out i did not want such an obvious name. this is on ubuntu.

to get rid of all current configuration (including users)

cd /var/lib

sudo rm -rf jenkins

then to modify the default port where jenkins runs when installed from their repository

cd /etc/default

sudo emacs -nw jenkins

modify HTTP_PORT

sudo apt-get remove jenkins

sudo apt-get install jenkins

thats that. could be done easier and whatnot I am sure. especially since this basically nukes the current install, all jobs and all configurations. but worked for me.
