I had to use --net=host to get this to work as the other thread said. I gave up after a lot of tries, it just won’t connect to the Plex Media Server but running it straight on the CLI worked fine with --net=host
it seems the Plex Rock-ons has been updated recently to a newer version as there is new input required during install as also dicussed above. I’ve used the following parameters and I get always the error, that there is no Plex Server found even by being at the WebGui interface of Plex itself. Any quick help or trick you can provide?
Yes I’m using the standard Plex from the Rock-ons libaryas it worked last time before I’ve done a complete new install of Rockstor itself due to new set of HDD’s, but meanwhile this newer version seems to make problems. Has it not been enough tested before going online or is there a mistake on my side?
the official plex plugin has a port conflict and thus shuts down. so the reason for you not finding the plexserver is because it is not running. (the simple explanation, i have not been digging, it is in the reference post).
Just download and add my plex JSON, as described, and it should work as intended.
@bug11 tried to uninstall (org. plex rock-ons), created directory (opt/rockstor/rockstor-metadata), downloaded plex.json from your liink (https://github.com/rockstor/rockon-registry/blob/master/plex.json), pushed the refresh button and installed again the plug-in. Same parameters have been asked like PUID/PGID and same error in not finding the plex server afterwards
What could be the reason - it seems the uploaded plex.json has not been used for install isn’t it?
@bug11 thanks again for quick reply - I’m a newbie on Rockstor, but maybe my “stupid” questions will help others
by using the following link and its file I get belows error after refreshing the webGui?
Finally I was able to install due to other issues I had to uninstall and install again, but now there is no selection of the different shares required (config, data, db) it starts with the following screen
That is a GUI error, not sure why. The option to select shares is part of JSON. Please cancel install, hit refresh and try again. I know @suman is working on GUI improvements, so if you can find anything in any logs to help identify what is happening here, please submit to him. As this will help him improve on the GUI experience.
Just a quick update. I’ve fixed up the Plex rockon profile to use host networking and also made a few changes in light of upstream Plex and linuxserver.io docker images changes. I gave it a quick test and it’s working. Try it out!
I just want to make sure before I try again to add storage and possibly crash Plex.
These are the settings done during install
The indicated plex-data “/data” does not contain any media…
All my media (photos, videos, music) is on “rm_share” - replacing the “/data” by the “rm_share” did not help to be able to find and add all my media to the Plex library through the webinterface.
If I would use the “add storage” button what needs to be put into the “Rock-on directory” based on aboves settings?
Sorry, it seems I got confused somehow as the most logical approach by selecting “rm_share” as the data share rulted not to see my media within Plex. THX
I ended up copying data into a new share. But if you go into plex and add a directory (plex UI) you should be able to navigate and add your share. Since you can add a new one I’d create one for the install and then just attach the new one later. It won’t destroy data.
I navigated to /data within my share from the plexui
Is that along the lines of what you were asking?strong text
@magicalyak I don’t want to duplicate data. If I try to add e.g. videos to my library within the plexUI and look up in /data…I can’t see my files independent which share I’ve selected during installation (rm_share or new plex_data share).
Question: using the wrench to add storage functionality - should be the “Rock-on directory” the path where the new share should be mounted in? e.g. mount “rm_share” content into “/data”?
Solved: I’ve added my “rm_share” and destination “/data/media” and now I have all my media mirrored into this path and accessible by plexUI
