Plex Media Server Went Away

Postby cpeddie » Tue May 21, 2019 10:22 pm

I had Plex running for a long time, then mysteriously the server could no longer be found. I've uninstalled it and want to re-install it, but when I go to the Plex app in the store, there is no install option. Is Plex no longer supported?

You install the app on your HDA, not from the App Store.

Go to http://hda and choose the applications tab.

So I re-install Plex and go to the home page. What I now see is the same screen I was seeing before I uninstalled the app- a Plex page where it can't find a server. The center of the screen is prompting me to download server code, but I thought the server was created when I installed the app from the Amahi web interface? (Is it possible to attach screen shots in the forums?)

I don't think I should be downloading the server as it's prompting me, should I?

Thanks...
Craig

Check out Plex Media Server guidance in the wiki.

Also if you search the forums, you likely will find someone who had this same issue in the past.
