    1. Stop PMS
    2. as root, delete "/var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Preferences.xml"
    3. Start PMS
    4. If it is on the same subnet as your computer, open it directly with http://ip.of.ras.pi:32400/web and the (first-run) welcome and setup wizard will greet you. Signing in and claiming it will establish you as the owner.
    5. If on a different subnet, Open a ssh -L 8888:localhost:32400 ip.of.ras.pi and then http://localhost:8888/web on your local browser..

    I've deleted the file Preferences.xml but not work again :(

    I've try to perform " sudo ssh -L 8888:localhost:32400 ip.of.ras.pi` but it's required the password, which password i insert?

    The default credentials of raspberry Pi3 are and . I try to insert but not work :(

    You created it with Ubuntu, right?

    If so, you will need to log in as yourself (whatever the 'default username' is) .

    The command line only need be altered slightly to tell ssh which username to log in as on the Pi.

    ssh -l username_to_log_in_as -L 8888:localhost:32400 ip.of.ras.pi

    223.23.4.90 is not a valid private network IP . Your network and Pi must be in this address range https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network

    Sorry, another question...It's possible add folder from local network (NAS HDD) in Plex Server Library?

    Yes,

    Mount the NAS share using /etc/fstab at the Linux level. Once mounted, with permissions relaxed so Plex can read the files (it does not need permission to write), it will find your media.

    NFS mounts appear in fstab as:

    ip.address.of.server:/sharename /local/mount/directory nfs defaults,auto,rw,nofail,bg 0 0

    ip.address.of.server:/sharename /local/mount/directory nfs defaults,auto,rw,nofail,bg 0 0
    The string, It will allow, in case of reboot the Raspberry Pi3, the NAS share will mount in automatically?

  • ChuckPAChuckPA Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja, Plex Team Member Posts: 13,553 Plex Team Member

    read the electronic manual page for fstab. it will teach you all you need to know about the string.

    If you are going to use Linux, you need to learn how to make it do what you need.
