Development Tools Continuous Integration with Jenkins How Jenkins Works Running Jenkins for the First Time

I have been stuck on this screen for over 10 minutes, what can I do to progress Jenkins?

I ran the 'java -jar jenkins.war --httpPort=8080' command and it seems to have run fine and opened up Jenkins in the browser, but for some reason it never gets to the part where I can put in my password. Instead it hangs on a page with the Jenkins logo and this message: Please wait while Jenkins is getting ready to work ... Your browser will reload automatically when Jenkins is ready.

How can I make this progress so I can continue the tutorial?

I found out that it was being blocked by my work. Thank you for the answer!

It works fine for me, in both java 8 and java 11. (java 11 does print some warnings, but continues).

Are you sure you have a valid working version of java? Or could your system be running low on memory or otherwise overloaded?
