Note: Please read the GCE Introduction before continuing

1. Requirements

i. An existing PlexGuide setup

ii. A valid Google account that has not been setup for GCP before (It does not have to be the same as your G/Tdrive account)

iii. A valid debit or credit card. Google validates these, and a prepaid card will not work.

iv. Usenet indexers and providers.

2. Account Setup

Go to and login to the Google account you are going to use for the trial

Select "Try GCP Free"


Select your country and agree to the terms of service

Set your account type to individual and fill out the rest of the personal information

Account Type

Once your account is created it will automatically put you in the Compute Engine section. Give it a few minutes to process your new account

Once the account is processed you should see an "enable billing" button on the top left. Go ahead and enable it. (Note: once the $300 trial credit expires it will freeze your account and not charge you until you "upgrade" your account. You will also have to enable this every time you create a new project)


Then select "set account"


You're now ready to setup GCE from your existing PG setup!

3. Instance Setup

  1. Login in to your current PG setup

  2. Select PG Cloud in the main plexguide menu

PG Cloud

  1. Select GCE instance


  1. Configure your account to use your Google Cloud Compute account you setup in the previous section

  2. Set your project interface. Use option 2 "Build a new project" to create a project with any name you want. Then use option 1 to select the project you just created.

6.Select your processor count

  1. Select your server region. I highly recommend Europe-West4 (NL) or US-East4 (Virginia) to be closest to your usenet providers location

  2. Deploy your new server!

4. Configuring a GCE instance

Now that you have a running GCE sever now all you have to do is SSH into and set it up!

Under the PG Clone GCE menu select "SSH intop the GCE Box"

If you receive a notice saying "WARNING: The public SSH key file for gcloud does not exist" just follow the prompts to create a key. It will then tell you where you keys are stored, which you can download to use with your own SSH client.


Once you are in the GCE instance go ahead and run the PG installer like you would on a normal server. Once you restore sonarr/radarr/nzbget/whatever you will now be able to enjoy the insane speeds of a GCE server!

If you want to go back to your main server simply type "exit" to leave the GCE server SSH session.
