Server move failure
Okay a bit of background - I've been a PlexPass subscriber for a few years now, most of this time I've ran this in a FreeBSD jail (thebrig) on my NAS4Free box. I've gone through many upgrades (from 0.9 onwards IIRC) without issue. Everything has been working fine until today, I noticed that the usual 'pkg update && pkg upgrade' process wasn't upgrading my Plex server but no biggie, 1.3.whatever was working okay for me.
FYI I also have a Nvidia Shield that is running its own PMS.
Today I thought I'd go through some maintenance on my NAS4Free and update it from old 10.2 up to latest (188.8.131.52). This went fine and I still had access to PMS.
I then found an N4F addon called OBI (OneButtonInstaller) which will install PMS, which was also a newer version (184.108.40.20634), great! But how do I move all my settings without losing my watched states etc? Lo-and-behold: https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/201370363-Move-an-Install-to-Another-System. Great! This looks easy enough.
So I TGZ'd my entire plexdata directory (/usr/local/plexdata-plexpass/Plex Media Server/*) leaving all files where they were on the jail install (just in case!), signed out on the original server and shutdown the jail. I then extracted my archive in the new location on N4F install (/mnt/NAS/System/OBI/plex/plexdata/Plex Media Server/), took ownership with 'chown -R' and started the new install - great stuff, I can see the web interface on http://10.0.0.1:32400/web so the server is running.. I login.... and I can see the Shield and my test Cloud install, but no sign of my NAS!!!
I then shutdown the new install, fired up the old jail and that is not showing up now either?!? I've searched and searched, fond suggestions to logout of webapp first and login on my server - no joy, delete the server from the Device list (it wasn't there), and all sorts. How can I get my server to show itself????
Hope someone can help
