manual upgrade to plex 1.9.4 on freenas 11



I have searched for days and just cant seem to find what I'm looking for but I am trying to do the manual upgrade from 1.9.2 to 1.9.4. Can someone please point me in the right direction?


Go to Click the download link and choose your OS. Ensure Plex Pass Downloads is set to On.


It’s really a painful process to manually install from a download / much better off to wait the couple of days more that it’ll take for the port or pkg to be ready


I'm running plex on a FreeNAS box and from what I understand the plex-pass version is not available to download and is only available through a manual upgrade. Are there instructions for this process?


I just use pkg to install plexpass version but things haven't been updated recently. We need to update the port.


The Plexpass option is there - I use ports so it’s a process for me.
Portsnap fetch
Portsnap extract

Then to install ...
CD /usr/ports/multimedia/plexmediaserver-plexpass && make install clean

Updating is
Portsnap fetch
Portsnap update

Usually there isn’t a lot of time lost between the update being available to download and the ports and packages being updated as well, but it almost seems like it’s taking a bit longer for the last few updates.

Last update was September 26 to get it up to


This is my favorite Tutorial. For Plex Pass just add "-plexpass" to the pkg installs and "_plexpass" to the service to start and stop it.


I believe he was looking for the upgrade to 1.9.4 - and we are all stuck waiting on that


And there it finally is ! 1.9.4 for regular folks and 1.9.5 (?) for plexpass


for whatever reason ~~I'm unable to update from 1.9.2 to 1.9.5 via pkg update... says pkg is up to date.~~ meh, took a couple days after release to Freshports for it to be available.
