Media server stuck on "Starting"?
I'm really sorry everyone... I recently sent out an update which turned out to have some problems, and prevents the media server from starting. By the time we realised, it'd already been downloaded by several users. We've taken the bad update offline, so it won't affect anyone else.
If you've been hit by this problem, you can resolve it by taking the following steps:
- Quit the media server by selecting the Plex icon in your Mac's menu bar, and choosing "Quit" from the drop-down menu.
- Open the folder "/Users/(username)/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins" in Finder.
- Delete "Framework.bundle", and "System.bundle" or move them to the trash.
- Restart Plex Media Server.
After that, everything should be back to normal. Please post in this thread if you're still having issues, and again I sincerely apologise for any trouble this has caused.
