Hello again. Let’s continue where we left the scene previously. We’re building Plex under Debian Linux.
The first steps are always the same – adjusting SSH, installing SNMP, etc.
This time, we need to access the shares provided by the NAS.
apt install cifs-utils -y mount -t cifs -o username=user,password=password //10.0.0.11/share /mnt/share nano /etc/fstab //10.0.0.11/share/ /mnt/share cifs username=user,password=password 0 0
On top of that, we need some requirements:
apt install apt-transport-https curl wget sudo gnupg2 -y echo deb https://downloads.plex.tv/repo/deb public main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list curl https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-keys/PlexSign.key | sudo apt-key add -
And a few more lines for the actual deployment. Please find more in the documentation here and here.
apt update apt install plexmediaserver -y systemctl enable plexmediaserver
That’s it. Now we go straight to the GUI at http://<ip-address>:32400/web
The first thing is to create the libraries, and we’re going to map the storage folders:
Depending on the size of the library, this can take between a minute and a few days.
Remember that I provided excessive resources to the VM; that will be helpful now.
Later, once the libs are read, we can remove at least two vCPU and reduce to 4 gigs of memory.
That was a quick one!
