I just upgraded my image to the latest version of plex, and cannot get it to work anymore, get the following error in the logs:

First time posting, recently got into unraid, and setting up binhex containers one by one, just want to say thanks to binhex and this community for all the support and effort. Amazing support and work

Overview: Support for Docker image arch-plex in the binhex repo. Application: Plex - https://plex.tv/ Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/binhex/arch-plex/ GitHub: https://github.com/b

For those who may be experiencing the same issue with the binhex container, I have found a solution. For some dumb reason that I can't explain, you have to enter both variable twice. I added them both

Hi all,

 

I have lost access to my Plex server.  I was on the Plex.tv site from work and I decided to change my password.  Big mistake.  I checked the box to invalidate all connected devices, and I lost access to the server.  I thought I'd just be able to restart it when I got home, but no.  I can restart, but port 32400 on my local network no longer delivers anything.  I ran:

 

lsof -i -P -n | grep LISTEN

 

from the shell, and it says:

 

docker-pr 22409   root    4u  IPv6 323760312      0t0  TCP *:32400 (LISTEN)

 

So it looks like it's listening.

 

I tried to adjust the Preferences.xml as indicated here:  https://support.plex.tv/articles/204281528-why-am-i-locked-out-of-server-settings-and-how-do-i-get-in/

but there is no change.

 

In looking at the plex server log, the server appears to be shutting down (though the docker continues to run with no docker log errors).  There are messages involving plex.tv, but I don't really understand much of what's going on in there.  I've attached a plex server log of a complete startup.

 

If anyone has an idea I'd love to hear it.  Any help would be appreciated.  

 

 

server.log 45.74 kB · 2 downloads

 

So I gave up.  It seems no one knows what the problem is (including me :))   I switched to the Plexinc container and finally got back up and going.

 

It took me quite a while to get it all working, so If anyone else needs to make the switch here are a few tips from my past couple of hours of pain:

 

First take the time to copy your binex-plex config directory to a new location, so you can keep the original for reference in case you screw up and need to do it over.

 

Next, read and understand as best you can, the readme for the Plexinc container: https://github.com/plexinc/pms-docker

 

The /config directory for binhex-plex docker has the directory "Plex Media Server" directly inside it. 

In the Plexinc docker, the "Plex Media Server" directory is inside "Library/Application Support/", so you'll have to create the directories "Library/Application Support" and then move your existing "Plex Media Server" into it.  Your /config container path should then point to the directory containing "Library"

 

If this sounds confusing, you can always just create a temporary plexinc docker with the container name "plex-tmp" or something, start it up with the default values and look at what it creates.

 

In the directions don't forget the variable ALLOWED_NETWORKS, otherwise you won't be able to connect to plex on your local network.

 

If you have a plex pass, the repository field should be 'plexinc/pms-docker:plexpass' instead of 'plexinc/pms-docker', so you receive updates correctly.

 

For more tips, 'Spaceinvader one' created a video on switching containers that's also worth a watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RgPx7BN8DE

 

Hmm...  I think that's about it.  In any case that's what worked for me.  Good luck!

Yes sorry, I saw plex and I entered... I'm using the default plex image from unraid.

You can get to the applicable support thread for any given app by hitting the icon for the app and choosing "Support"

 

That image you're using is deprecated and not supported.  Highly recommended to watch this video

Probably a dumb question, but I am new to docker.


I see in the plex GUI that an update is available; do I update using that link, or wait until there is an update for the docker container?

 

Or are docker container updates not necessarily related to updates for the program they contain?

Just wait until the container updates.  In Unraid you can easily auto-update.  I do this after I backup my appdata every night.  You can elect to obviously just wait and update the container when a new version is available.

For some reason as of yesterday I can't access Plex.  The web UI fails to load and I can't access it via the Apple TV either.  Here's the latest logs:

@binhex Found it.  Ok, yes corruption is mentioned.  When you state "Move Plex metadata to cache drive".   How do I do this?  I'm unsure of the steps to acheive this?

 

I am also running the latest version of unraid so why did this happen if the bug is no longer present in this version?

ok its actually a bit tricky due to the fact that the appdata share maybe spread out across multiple drives in the array, so best approach is as follows:-

 

1. stop docker - unraid ui/settings/docker/enable docker - no and apply

2. change share name 'appdata' to 'appdata-old' or something similar

3. create a new share named 'appdata'

4. mark the new share as cache only - ensure this is set or your appdata will get moved back to the array by the 'mover' process

5. goto console/ssh of unraid and type the following:-

rsync -avzh /mnt/user/appdata-old/ /mnt/user/appdata/

this will copy all files and folders from the old share on your array to the new share on your cache drive

note:- this can take some time, leave it to finish! - do NOT cancel

6. start docker - unraid ui/settings/docker/enable docker - yes and apply

7. once you are happy things are operational again then delete all the files/folders in /mnt/user/appdata-old and then remove the old share 'appdata-old'

this is a very good question! and possibly one to put to @limetech, are you sure you didn't upgrade from 6.7.x with sqlite corruption already happening or have you been on 6.8.x for some time before the corruption happened?.

Anyone else having issues with the Android apps lately not wanting to play videos?  TV and movies?  Some seem to work, but a lot don't.  Get an error message saying to restart the server and the app and see if that fixes it.  It doesn't.  I even reinstalled the server docker and still does the same things.  I don't really see any errors in the logs, but I can post whatever is needed.  Thanks.

EC28 i am having the same problems, my plex log comes with a few errors like Denying access to transcode of key /library/metadata/3944 due to terminated session and [Transcoder] [eac3_eae @ 0x8ac540] EAE watchfolder is not writable: config/transcode/pms-3d039df9-cfcc-42ce-84bf-7b6ba2b99394/EasyAudioEncoder/Convert to WAV (to 8ch or less)/31905c9e8f1c115d-com-plexapp-android_780-0-test.tmp

I am running into an issue since after the new years where running binhex/arch-plexpass will always buffer when watching anything. My system is ryzen 7, 3800x with 32gb of ram with no gpu, updated docker to latest. I tried playing the videos directly and it works fine so it's definitely not the video file. Then I observe when watching through plex, there would be very little cpu usage but when I pin the cpu (4 in this case) I will see it not buffer and all 4 cores spiking in usage.

How do I downgrade? Last update comepletly screwed everything over. No acces to media. No remote acces. All users are lost...
Upgraded today to Version 1.18.8.2527. Since restart of new container, all the issues began.

You would add a tag when editing the app (ie: instead of the repository being binhex/plex you would change it to binhex/plex:tag)

 

Tags are listed here:

https://registry.hub.docker.com/r/binhex/arch-plex/tags

 

Not that I use Plex, but I would think that there's something else going on.

Hello, I need some help with ms PMS. PLex media GUI is not working. Last night i was rearranging  my home network which in effect changed my DHCP.  At the same time adding a NIC to the sever. I'm at the point where I can see the shares in any computer in the house but when I start the plex docker the option for the Web GUI isn't shown.
