The VM that was running Jenkins for me crashed, and when I rebooted it there were no Jobs on Jenkins. These weren't terribly complicated scripts, but it did take several hours to write is there any way I can recover them? There are still directories in /var/lib/jenkins/jobs that contain the config.xml, but I don't know how to get jenkins to read these files? Any help recovering these would be appreciated...
