Thanks for the link, I'm voting up your answer - but I am specifically asking for Dreamhost VPS-specific implementation. – amateur barista Mar 30 '11 at 20:27
Do you have a complete vps? With root access? – Stony Mar 30 '11 at 21:36
@Stony Yes, I do have a VPS with root access. – amateur barista Mar 30 '11 at 23:39
so then whats the problem? Then follow the installation guide. When you insert the source they load all depencies. – Stony Mar 31 '11 at 0:09
Does that restart jenkins automatically too? – amateur barista Mar 31 '11 at 0:57
