Install Sonatype Nexus as Windows Service

The following mini-guide takes you through the steps I used to install a Nexus server on a Windows machine.

Step 1: Download and unzip nexus.

Step 2: Move the folder "nexus-2.0.4-1-bundle" to C:\Program Files.

Step 3: Install the nexus Windows Service. Double click the batch file: C:\Program Files (x86)\nexus-2.0.4-1-bundle\nexus-2.0.4-1\bin\jsw\windows-x86-32\install-nexus.bat.

Step 4: Open up Windows Services and start "nexus".

Step 5: Verify it's working. Open up a browser and go to http://localhost:8081/nexus. Login using the nexus default username and password of admin/admin123.

Piece of Cake!!!

Hey, thanks for the steps! However I can't really get the step-4 to work! I don't understand what "Windows Services" you are asking us to open!

run "services" from windows machine and you find the service running or installed in the system. search for the service "nexus" right click on the services and start it.

There is no `bin\jsw\` anymore :( No readme also. God bless OSS.
