Maybe I'm okay not having Amahi manage it, but I installed PMS from the Plex website with no issues. I'm running Amahi 6.3 on Ubuntu 12.04.

Any guidance on how you installed? We could use the help in updating the current Amahi app and hopefully get it LIVE soon.

Hi Bigfoot,

Actually I have had plex running on my Ubuntu/Amahi mashine for a while now as well. I must say it is 2nd most useful feature on my server (besides greyhole). Following procedure worked for me ( I beleive its the same you will find on official plex website):

I think I have it working for Ubuntu now as an Amahi app. Not so good for Fedora, but getting close.

UPDATE: Working for Fedora 14 as well. Only issue is uninstall does not remove the app completely on either OS. There will be some manual work needed.

Can we expect it availiable as an app to install any time soon? I really like having services running "Amahi way" on my system.
Thanks!

Hard to say as we need to get some to test it. I would like to add some defaults to the settings, but unsure what files are modified.

If we could make it install and have all the Amahi shares preset, that would be nice.

Two notes regarding Amahi Plex Installation instructions >> https://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Plex_Media_Server

1.) This link is out of date >> wget https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-se ... 1.i386.rpm

As of 6.28.16 this is the proper link to download >> wget https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-se ... x86_64.rpm

make sure you goto https://www.plex.tv/downloads/ and make sure you are downloading the latest link.

2. ) The name for the plexmedia service changes after you first start the service >> sudo systemctl enable plexmediaserver.service && systemctl start plexmediaserver

After an hour or so the service name changes from plexmediaserver to amahi-plex.

So when your service stops working just start it by systemctl start amahi-plex

****************************************************************************************************************************************

I installed the latest RPM for Fedora, after the install everything works perfectly. After an hour or two the service turns off and when I go to restart the server it acts as if the files don't exist. I remove the plex server and start from scratch... After going thought this process several times and reading every blog I can find I figured out the problem.

For some reason after the Plex Media Server is installed and runs for a short time the service names changes to amahi-plex.

Not sure why this happens, because when you initially start the service its called plexmediaserver.

You must not have followed all the wiki guidance. The exclude line must be missing or the RPM would not automatically update.

BTW, feel free to update the wiki. The guidance is user contributed and we don't have the resources to keep it up.

Closing this post as it's no longer applicable to the initial post. A new one will be needed for future issues.
