Plex is dead? Or not?


#1

Hi,

Changing to my dedicate server, enable to have Plex. Enable to install it proprely. Enable to have it (on the dashbord plex is red).
Enable to go to localhost: ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED. So what can I do to? It is a new installation.

Quickbox:~# apt-get autoremove plexmediaserver && apt-get -y install plexmediaserver

Already the same with Ubuntu 16.04 …


#3

Sadly not using an ubuntu atm. but on debian it’s running just fine with latest release - so pretty much alive here :grinning:


#4

google says: sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq plexmediaserver

and then I would try installing from the quickbox gui or via box and not trying to install via just apt.


#5

Already tried.
When installation was by gui, on the term plex is not installated.


#6

It seems to me like you need to get this uninstalled before it will install again. Have you looked and tried these:

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.


#8

Not solved yet
