Cant access plex server even though service is running with no errors
I appreciate any help you can give me. I am ok at linux but I cant find any reason for the error.
My main hard drive filled to 100% due to excessive logs. That has been fixed. Plex was still running through this. And also played fine after clearing space. I did a restart thinking its been a month or two and it was a good time to get a quick one in.
The server is not accessible now via web or any other way. I checked to make sure there were no errors and it was running fine:
user@system:~$ sudo service plexmediaserver status

I went to check the logs to see if I could fine anything and nothing stood out.
Anyone have any suggestions on what to do. I uninstalled and reinstalled the package (I didn't remove directory's after uninstalling hoping I don't need to do a full setup). When I went to the local address it asked me to sign in, but then it didnt do any server setup. just showed me my server was down and that is it.
Again thank you for the help.
