Running Jenkins in a Docker Container

Im trying to get some hands on experience in Jenkins and wanted to run it in a docker container. I was following the tutorial here. I have docker installed on my machine and using Kitematic I launched the official Jenkins docker image (tag: latest) using:

docker run -p 8080:8080 jenkins

However once the container is setup when I go to ( is my docker-machine ip) it shows the default nginx page. shows

  • Is there any solution to execute binary in container that mount from host?
  • Docker swarm cluster and elasticsearch, using constraints to bind a service to a specific node
  • Generate all locales in a docker image
  • MySQL databases are gone when the docker container is shutdown
  • Bypass install configuration in dockerfile
  • Something missing in configuration for publishing from VS to Docker on Ubuntu?
  • HTTP ERROR 404
    Problem accessing /jenkins. Reason:
        Not Found

    The weird part is that kitmatic shows a web preview of the running container and shows jenkins up and running fine, but how do I access it via the browser????enter image description here

    EDIT : Just tried docker run -p 8082:8080 jenkins. and it works i.e. I can see the jenkins landing page. Whaaaa.. ?

    See if the port 8080 is already taken by another application. it’s not allocating this port because it’s taken – that is why it can’t reach Jenkins. try looking here:
