Moving from macOS based Plex Media Server to freenas and running into trouble

server-freebsd

#1

I followed the steps as described in what seems to be the official Plex guide (https://support.plex.tv/articles/201370363-move-an-install-to-another-system/) but when I get to the step of "Launch Plex Web App
Open your Plex Web App and you should see your libraries, though your content is unlikely to work yet." I don't see any of my libraries there. Something is missing somewhere. Is there a newer guide that I should be using somewhere else? Thanks!

Did you mount the directories containing your media to your plex jail?


#3

Yes, and it treats them just like new media is added, as though nothing was migrated.


#4

Did you move your old database and metadata over to /usr/local/plexdata/Plex Media Server/

The above assumes an install into a standard jail not the plugin.
