  • GETTING MESSAGE AFTER TRYING TO RESTART "Jenkins cannot restart itself as currently configured." wHAT SHOULD I DO NOW? – user14631 Apr 24 at 20:51

To restart Jenkins manually, you can use either of the following commands (by entering their URL in a browser):

(jenkins_url)/safeRestart - Allows all running jobs to complete. New jobs will remain in the queue to run after the restart is complete.

(jenkins_url)/restart - Forces a restart without waiting for builds to complete.

    I've always thought they should have named 'safeRestart' to 'restart' and the 'restart' command to 'forceRestart'. It seems dangerous to have restart be the less safe option, but thats just me :) – PrestonM Apr 25 at 16:47

You can restart jenkins by visiting /restart. So if your url is https://my-jenkins.local you would visit https://my-jenkins.local/restart.

It's been answered many times before, so maybe search around next time ;). Hope that helps ya.
