Avoid to sign in manually after restarting the PMS service?



I don't understand if I'm doing something wrong, or if I'm looking for something which is not supposed to be possible. I've tried to search for other similar questions on this forum, but to no avail.

A little heads up, I'm currently running PMS on Arch Linux x86_64.

Whenever I restart PMS (via systemctl), my server is unavailable to clients until I manually sign in via the web interface. Is there any way to avoid this? I'd really love to be able to automatically log in to my account, is there any way to achieve that?


You have some weird permissions problem where PMS is unable to save your plex.tv account information in the Preferences.xml file.

I have seen several reports for issues like this on Arch and have reluctantly been forced to refer the person back to the source (who packaged for them) because Arch is not a supported OS


Thanks for the reply! This allowed me to track the preferences file and give it the right permissions, now everything seems to be working :slight_smile:
