  1. I've managed to figure it out. I set up an SSH tunnel as per instructions here: https://support.plex.tv/articles/200288586-installation/ https://www.skyverge.com/blog/how-to-set-up-an-ssh-tunnel-with-putty/ Then followed this sequence: 1. Stop the container 2. Delete the preferences.xml 3. Restart the container 4. Access the URL: http://localhost:8888/web/index.html Good learning experience
  2. I've manually added my PlexOnlineToken value to my Preferences.xml and restarted the container. This gave some success as the other fields such as PlexOnlineUsername and PlexOnlineEmail were populated successfully into the Preferences.xml file. However I am still not seeing a server...
  3. On container startup I see this when viewing the log: ##################################################### # Login via the webui at http://<ip>:32400/web # # and restart the docker, because there was no # # plex token found in the preference file # ##################################################### I assume this is referring to: `/mnt/user/Docker Config/Plex/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Preferences.xml` I've tried deleting this and restarting the container again but it doesn't make a difference.
  4. I feel like I'm being stupid but I can't get Plex running anymore. I've had Plex running perfectly using binhex' container for about two years now, but a recent 'oops' moment has resulted in me setting up all my containers again. I've tried re-installing the binhex container using the same template but it failed to find my server. After some frustration I just decided to try a new container (this one). So I've 1. Set up the container with my path mappings 2. Started the container and launched the web ui (:32400/web) 3. Logged in using my credentials Now I see a message "A server could not be found. Download and install Plex Media Server, and it will appear here." I had cleared all of my authorised devices earlier, and then changed my password. Now when I look at my authorised devices all I see is my web browser - Where I would expect to see a server instance. Have I missed a step somewhere? EDIT: It might be worth noting that I am accessing my server remotely through OpenVPN. I'm access the web interface at: http://192.168.0.73:32400
  5. Yeah that repo writes the credentials out to a plain text file in start.sh for openvpn: # add OpenVPN user/pass if [[ "${OPENVPN_USERNAME}" == "**None**" ]] || [[ "${OPENVPN_PASSWORD}" == "**None**" ]] ; then if [[ ! -f /config/openvpn-credentials.txt ]] ; then echo "OpenVPN credentials not set. Exiting." exit 1 fi echo "Found existing OPENVPN credentials..." else echo "Setting OPENVPN credentials..." mkdir -p /config echo "${OPENVPN_USERNAME}" > /config/openvpn-credentials.txt echo "${OPENVPN_PASSWORD}" >> /config/openvpn-credentials.txt chmod 600 /config/openvpn-credentials.txt fi I have no idea why though. It doesn't seem to get referenced again after that *.txt is initially created. Baffling!
  6. I've just installed transmission-openvpn docker and got it running with NordVPN. I do not recommend anyone to use NordVPN as they do not support port forwarding so my speeds are abysmal. They are refusing to issue me with a refund for the unused subscription time as I no longer need Nord. Anyway, onto why I'm here.. I've noticed two plain text files in this config folder containing the credentials for Transmission and the credentials for my NordVPN account. They are named: openvpn-credentials.txt transmission-credentials.txt This seems like a pretty serious security vulnerability? Password should never be stored in plain text... 🤨
  7. However I can view the contents under.. http://<IPAddress>/Shares/Browse?dir=/mnt/user/ExtHDD
  8. Hello all, I am following this guide to mount my external HDD: https://wiki.lime-technology.com/Mounting_an_external_USB_drive_having_an_existing_NTFS_file_system_in_READ/WRITE_mode_to_transport_files_from/to_unRaid_server I have done the following based off the above: cat /proc/partitions mkdir /mnt/user/ExtHDD mount -t ntfs-3g -o umask=111,dmask=000 /dev/sdg1 /mnt/user/ExtHDD This works - I can view the contents of the disk via SSH. However I cannot view it as a share from the Web GUI or by navigating to it via Windows Explorer. Am I doing something wrong? Is it possible to mount the ExtHDD as a temporary share?
  9. I am experiencing a bit of an odd issue with my media management, and I am fairly positive it is couchpotato causing problems... 1. My torrent client downloads everything to /mnt/user/TorrentDownloads 2. Couchpotato scans this directory and moves completed downloads to /mnt/user/Movies 3. Once the files are moved to the Movies directory their file extensions are either removed or renamed to 'random' For example, see the 3 most recent downloads: The.Purge.Election.Year.2016.720p.BluRay.x264: The.Purge.Election.Year.2016.720p.BluRay.x264 (Missing file extension) The.Infiltrator.2016.720p.BluRay.x264: The.Infiltrator.2016.720p.BluRay.x264.random-G46KXD79 (File extension changed to random) The.Infiltrator.2016.720p.BluRay.x264 (Missing file extension) Free.State.of.Jones.2016.720p.BluRay.x264: Free.State.of.Jones.2016.720p.BluRay.x264(Missing file extension) Free.State.of.Jones.2016.720p.BluRay.x264.random-TWYPS7AV (Changed to random) Free.State.of.Jones.2016.720p.BluRay.x264.random-YXBR4VAY (Changed to random) I have no idea why this started happening, or when EDIT Looks like the <ext> got removed from the file renamer settings. Testing now to see if this helps.
  10. Hey Rob! I'm just seeing this now so apologies for not responding. Honestly if the procedure just said that it could also be used for my scenario I would have just followed it, but I got a little bit concerned that I was following the incorrect guide. Replacing a failed drive seemed very different to what I wanted to do, or maybe I was just overthinking it! It looks like you have updated it now and it clearly covers what I was asking for - Good job on that very clear
  11. Perfect, thanks I'll just do it later tonight and let it work overnight - Should be little to no activity on the shares then..
  12. Preclear now done on the new drive. Took about two days. If I go ahead and set the new drive as the new parity device, will the array be offline while the parity is calculated? I need access to the shares for the evening so I'll just wait until tomorrow if need be
  13. Sorry should have specified I am on 6.1.3 Here is what I tried to do first: 1. Unassign parity drive 2. Assign new 4TB drive to parity slot 3. Assign old 3TB parity as data disk This would not allow me to proceed.. So I think I will need to do it this way: 1. Unassign 3TB parity 2. Assign new 4TB parity 3. Start the array and ensure parity sync completes 4. Once complete, assign old 3TB parity as new disk 5. Wait for array to finish syncing 6. Done?
  14. Oops: https://lime-technology.com/wiki/index.php/The_parity_swap_procedure So it looks like I need to do this in a two-step process? 1. Unassign current parity drive 2. Assign new drive to parity 3. Start the array with a parity-sync Then once this is done I assume: 1. Stop the array 2. Add old parity drive to data slot 3. Start the array
