Amahi/Fedora 23 "Looking for servers"

jawastjawast Members Posts: 3

I'm attempting to run PlexMS on Amahi/Fedora 23, but the Media Player can't find the server. It looks like someone else had the same problem, but their solution (accessing the Plex login page through http://10.0.1.10:32400) didn't work for me.

"You can confirm a ps -ef | grep -i plex returns running processes?"

Fedora is new to me, but as far as I'm aware, yes: plex 831 1 0 23:24 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Media Server

"You should also find (as root) "/var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Preferences.xml" has been created (mind the quotes)."

File and file structure exists.

"if good so far, Check sundry (firewall). I now use FC24. 23, IIRC, defaulted to a closed firewall. You'll need to set Permanent ports for PMS to fully operate on your LAN with the devices and browsers on other machines."

Attempted to do this, but FirewallD isn't running, so I'm assuming it's a non-issue.

"What do you get when you open https:/127.0.0.1:32400/web ?
This should be the First-Run sign-on and setup wizard."

No luck attempting to access Plex via that or 10.0.1.10. I get the same time-out error.

    Please help me understand what / where this came from?

    I am not able to put context on your post.

    Sorry, I was attempting to be proactive: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/250590/fedora-23-server-not-found

    Let's start fresh with your issue.

    Now you're on Fedora 24 ?
    If you do not get any response from http://127.0.0.1:32400/web on the actual 'console' of the system, PMS isn't running.

    I do not know how that 'server package' you are running works but if still Fedora underneath,

    ps -ef | grep -i plex will tell you if there are any processes running

    if none,

    sudo systemctl start plexmediaserver (start PMS)
    sudo systemctl enable plexmediaserver (auto start with boot)

    Plex seems to be running based on the output from systemctl status plexmediaserver and ps -ef | grep -i plex but I'm still not getting any response from http://127.0.0.1:32400/web.

    Ok... there is one last thing you can test.

    From a console session within that same environment ( I think you've got some kind of 'container' running creating an effective NAT layer)

    [chuck@lizum plex.141]$ wget http://127.0.0.1:32400
    --2017-03-20 23:39:59--  http://127.0.0.1:32400/
