Plex runs in a jail on FreeNAS. For some reason... Probably because I've manual install Plex inside a plain VirtualBox 4.3.12 jail, and they are very limited on a BSD (not Linux) install... I need to start the start the Plex shell script manually, until I get fed up with it and I create a service out of the start script... But it happens so rarely, that I never get around to do it, plus I forget that I need to start it manually the 2 times I had to to it...
- Goto FreeNAS
- Menu Jail-ViewJail
- Goto PlexPass jail and open terminal
- cd /PlexMediaServer-188.8.131.5272-b207937f1/
- ./start.sh & (Don't forget to run in background, else server exits on ^C)
- close shell
I've decided to pay the lifetime license because I find that PLEX is such a good piece of software and a great Movie multimedia player. But the free version is FULLY FEATURED, only lacks unessential nice to have. I highly recommend it.
