Setting up plex server


#1

Hi guys,
I just dicovered Quickbox and already love it !

Just one thing that I can’t solve. I want to finish the installation of Plex, so I set up a tunnel connection with Putty and then go to http://localhost:8888/web/

But I always have this message :

I’m using Debian 8 64bits.

Do you have any idea about it ?

Thanks !


Plex is dead? Or not?

have you checked that the plexmediaserver is actually running?

Try running this command in the shell

ps aux | grep plexmediaserver

you should then see something akin to this:

[[email protected]]:(3.8Mb)~$ ps aux | grep plexmediaserver
plex 22456 0.1 0.2 671740 73856 ? Ssl Nov11 1:58 /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Media Server
plex 22488 0.0 0.2 1858076 65900 ? SNl Nov11 1:07 Plex Plug-in [com.plexapp.system] /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins-1bef33a/Framework.bundle/Contents/Resources/Versions/2/Python/bootstrap.py --server-version 1.2.7.2987-1bef33a /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins-1bef33a/System.bundle

Guys, I don’t know if it’s easier, but any time I’ve had to do this I’ve found it easier to just install x2go and use the remote desktop to open the localhost:32400/web link.

Just incase you’re stuck at a wall :slight_smile:

Thank you for your help.

This what I get :

noodles+ 10805 0.0 0.0 12748 2276 pts/4 S+ 21:24 0:00 grep --color=au to plexmediaserver

Thanks valkyre14, but I have the same issue when I try to do it with the remote desktop

It looks like the daemon is not running. take a look at the screenshot I posted below and try that command. It should show you whether or not the daemon is loaded properly and running.

Yep, it’s not running, I get this :

plexmediaserver.service - Plex Media Server for Linux
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/plexmediaserver.service; enabled)
Active: failed (Result: start-limit) since Mon 2016-11-14 01:16:36 CET; 17h a go

So, what should I do ?
