503 Service Unavailable right after plex install

#1

Hello,

First of all i must say that i am a real beginner with linux so forgive me if i’m not really precise.

I got a problem running plex with Quickbox.

Setup is :

Kimsufi server Ks-3c
Ubuntu 16.04 installed

Quickbox install works fine, rutorrent works fine too but when i install plex, it doesn’t work right after install, there is a red bubble beside the service name in the dashboard and i get a 503 Service Unavailable error when i try to go to http://mydomain:31400/web/ .

I saw some topics with the same error but nothing i found there worked

Here is what i already done :

Server reboot
Os reinstall
Debian 8 and ubuntu 16.04 get the same result
installing plex with “box install plex” command

Result with systemctl status plexmediaserver command is always :

I would like some other advice on what to do because i have been searching to solve this for hours and nothing worked yet.

Thank you in advance.

you have to setup a ssh tunnel on port 32400 to setup plex on a remote server

Hello,

Thank’s for the reply.

I don’t why but after re-installing everything from scratch for the tenth time or so, it finaly worked.

I can’t tell what i did differently but now it’s perfect.
