Hi to all,
I have installed Plex via Quickbox correctly BUT i encounter two major problems.
a.) When i delete manually a movie… lets say i delete a movie from the ssh terminal, then Plex isnt updating its movie Library. The movie is still there and when i want to play it it spits out an error “Please check that the file exists and the necessary drive is mounted”. The Plex movie Library also marks all this movies as “Unavailable”. Why is Plex not updating its Library? I have deleted 15 movies and the movies still appear in the Library. I have done a “Refresh All” & “Empty Trash” already many times but Plex is not able to remove the movies from its Library. The only solution i found is deleting the Library and creating a new Library. But isnt it that Plex MUST update its Library if it notices a file change in the media Library? When a file is added it works fine… it recognizes it, downloads movie posters etc… BUT when i delete a movie or a file it isnt removing it from the Library… even when i do a Refresh All & Empty Trash the movies still appear there.
b.) I have installed from within Plex the Sub-Zero Plugin which is for downloading Subtitles. I configurd it AND i enabled the Plugin it in the Agents Settings by marking it as enabled AND by moving the Plugin at the top of the Agents list. But when i go into the Channels menu where the Plugin is it stil says “I’m not enabled! Please enable me for some of your libraries in your server settings; currently i do nothing”. I have already enabled the Plugin in the Agent Settings, also i have selected the CORRECT Agent when i created a new movie Library. I even tried to restart my VPS but i cant get the Plugin to work because it says i need to enable it.
The above errors leads me to the conclusion that MAYBE something is going wrong with some file permissions? But i have installed correctly Plex with the instructions that i found here. I did from within the ssh shell the following commands:
box install plex
Then i issued the following commands one by one:
systemctl stop plexmediaserver.service mkdir -p /var/lib/plexmediaserver adduser --quiet --system --shell /bin/bash --home /var/lib/plexmediaserver --group plex chown -R plex:plex /var/lib/plexmediaserver systemctl start plexmediaserver.service
Finally i also claimed successfully the Plex Server. I dont know where the problem is. Does anyone have encountered the same problems?
Thansk in advance
