Plex Media Server INIT Script

This is the init script for Plex Media Server that should be located at /etc/init.d/plexmediaserver. This is something I had to track down when setting up Plex Media Server with OpenMediaVault, as the default installer for PlexMediaServer seems to have a problem with creating the init script, so I had to manually add it.


I've also created a script that will automatically install latest init.d file and do everything for you (move files, etc)


mv plexmediaserver /etc/init.d/plexmediaserver
chmod +x /etc/init.d/plexmediaserver


Using this should be just the same as you normally do, but as example

/etc/init.d/plexmediaserver {start|stop|restart|status}

If you upgrade plex using the deb, the installer will rename the file to something like plexmediaserver.bkup, you will just need to remove the new /etc/init.d/plexmediaserver it created (should be blank), and move the backup back to it's original name.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
