Plex Server will not stay running on:

iMac (2011) with upgraded 8GB of RAM
OS: 10.10 Mavericks

Can anyone please help and suggest something other than updating the OS. Mavericks should be sufficient.

    I am using the current version, 1.6.1. I just also just did a complete fresh reinstall of my OS and the same problem is happening.

    Sorry to say it looks like PMS has been optimized for Sierra, you could try rolling back to public channel and Download the previous PMS

    So PMS is officially incompatible with any Mac OS below 10.12?

    Can you turn off verbose logging? Until a dev/ninja requests it, it just makes for larger log files and makes finding/tracing a bit harder. Also, those are standard logs - the next time it crashes, follow these instructions to get the crash logs:

    https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/201455336-Crash-Logs-Plex-Media-Server

    The logs get uploaded to Plex automatically, but only official Plex support staff can get to those.

    I am having this same problem on an iMac running 10.9.5. Can't get Plex to stay running for more than 3 to 5 minutes... Looking for version 1.5.1, or some sort of solution.
