How to Debug the reason Plex Media Server seems "Stuck" on startup on cent 7 64 bit?
Running cent 7 64bit in a vm and had a crash that caused some filesystem corruption on my application support folder. fsck repaired it, and the only files lost were 3 log files from the Logs dir.
Now, systemctl thinks that plex is running, but it is not in theory.
The process is indeed running: plex 982 0.2 0.3 337256 30972 ? Ssl 12:24 0:00 /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Media Server
but it does not seem to be doing anything. It does not update any logs in the application support directory, nor is it generating anything to journalctl or systemd.
This is a little frustrating as something is clearly wrong. If I try running plex media server manually with the proper environment vars exported, it just hangs. Is there a way to pass it into verbose mode or debug mode or something ?
The above process is the only plex process that starts instead of the usual group of them, and no logs are updated.
