Probably a stupid question but what is the difference between this and plex media server?

This is a newer version of plex media senter, for plex pass users.

Running 6.2.0-beta23 and updating to the latest version of this plugin, it no longer starts with the following error:

 

usermod: no changes
[info] Env var PUID defined as 99
[info] Env var PGID defined as 100
[info] Permissions already set for /config
chown: cannot access '/var/lib/plex': No such file or directory

 

I SSH'd into my server and confirmed that '/var/lib/plex' doesn't exist, but why is it looking for that folder?

 

Edit: Removed the container, deleted the /plex folder from appdata & reinstalled it - same error.

Edit2: I removed it again & installed the linuxserver plex docker and it works. :/

Thanks Binhex, so far it's working for me.  I'm a bit confused however due to all the containers I use from you since updating to the latest beta are showing "update ready" - even after updating.

All is working well, just did a force update and it was like nothing had ever happened.

Thank you binhex, our family enjoys your Plex, CouchPotato, Sonarr, DelugeVPN releases every single day!  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hi

 

I had the same issue and solved it by stopping my plexpass docker and then chewing edit, don't change anything, just hit save and it will pull and run with the new version.

 

hope this helps someone

Any idea when it will show the version 1 update they released a few days ago?

 

its already there, the update not showing is an unraid bug, left click, edit, dont change anything, click save, this forces the update

Im using your default Plex container and I recently bought my plex pass and so Id like to swap the container. Is there any way I can do that without loosing the library?

 

Thanks+

I tried to install this docker, I was using needos previously but noticed your states plex pass so I tried it. Now it doesn't see my media anymore saying that plex is unreachable, I changed /media to /mnt/user and pointed that to /mnt/user but still no joy I have also deleted the container and images and tried from scratch and still won't see my media. Any idea what might have gone wrong.

ok so the location of the metadata will most probably be different to needo's docker, so unless your REALLY keen on keeping your metadata then i would probably go from scratch and let it rebuild all the metadata. so to achieve this either create a new /config folder on the host or delete everything in the /config folder (obviously with all plex dockers stopped). once you have done this then start the docker container and on your lan (not remotely) open your web browser and go to http://<your unraid ip address>:32400/web

 

once you got this ui showing start adding in your media, this bit worries me a little:-

 

I changed /media to /mnt/user and pointed that to /mnt/user

 

so this is a fundamental understanding of docker volumes that you need to have clear (please forgive me if you do know how this works), basically its split into two, the unraid host side, as in /mnt/user/blahblah and the container side, which will look more like /media or /config or /data (but can be any name), so for example:-

 

/mnt/user:/media = this means that a container folder off the root file system INSIDE the container called "media" will be "mapped" to /mnt/user fuser on the unraid host, its that simple, so if you were able to do a directory listing INSIDE the container of /media it would be identical to doing the same directory listing on /mnt/user.

 

so now that is straight once you have /media as above you can then tell plex to start indexing media from /media/<name of sub folder> e.g. /media/movies

 

i hope this helps.

from memory the folder structure SHOULD be the same so it should simply be a case of stopping plex, configuring plex pass the same way as plex, and then starting it, but if i were you if your metadata is precious to you then i would personally copy the entire /config/plex folder, call it plex-backup or something and then you can always get back to a running plex instance if things go bad.

 

backing up /config folder for ALL dockers IMHO is a must, dont worry about the docker.img file its the loss of config that will be a kicker.

Thanks for enlightening me, I did not understand and you explained it well and the fogs cleared more. I'm a suing the colon is a typo ? "/mnt/user:/media"  and I should enter that without colon on the left side and right side map it to /mnt/user / ? If my understanding is correct.

 

As for not doing it remotley, I access via vpn so it's like being there as I access it via the up address over vpn ?

 

Thanks for your docker.

nope no typo, the colon is in there as that is for the format when specifying volume mappings via the command line for docker, but in your case your using the slightly more friendly unraid docker ui, so yes in your case just specify the host side as /mnt/user (or a more specific path if you want) and set the container side to be /media.

Then it is how it was set and is now...container set /media and path to host is /mnt/user/ and I have also tried setting that as /mnt/user/movies

 

I'm still getting the plex gui but it's not seeing anything and no way of adding. Accessing via vpn is by using ip address as you stated previously so I assume that's the same as being within the local network ?. I'm not concerned with having to completely rebuild metadata but more concerned of upsetting any of my other dockers which work all ok with the same path settings. Scratching my head a bit.
