      Install as a daemon
      This installation assumes PlexPy is installed to /opt/plexpy. Make sure all paths are correct and accessible. A common mistake is that a daemon user has no read and/or write permissions.

      Source Code

      1. cd /opt/plexpy
      2. Type : touch /etc/default/plexpy
      3. Optional:
      4. Type : adduser --system --no-create-home plexpy
      5. Type : chown plexpy:nogroup -R /opt/plexpy
      6. Adjust settings in /etc/default/plexpy. See the comments in /opt/plexpy/init-scripts/init.ubuntu for the list of parameters.
      7. Type : chmod +x /opt/plexpy/init-scripts/init.ubuntu
      8. Type : ln -s /opt/plexpy/init-scripts/init.ubuntu /etc/init.d/plexpy
      9. Type : update-rc.d plexpy defaults
      10. Type : service plexpy restart

      Thanks :D

      Instead of a separate plugin, could we not have an option in the plexmediaserver plugin to enable this for those who would want to use it?

    • I have added Plexpy into the plexmediaserver plugin, this allows the user to install/uninstall it and also set their preferred port.

      At the moment there is no package in the repo but if you would like to help test you can manually install it.

      Source Code

      1. wget http://jamied.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/openmediavault-plexmediaserver_1.0.13_all.deb
      2. dpkg -i openmediavault-plexmediaserver_1.0.13_all.deb; apt-get install -f


      After installing remember to refresh the OMV page so that the new settings will be loaded. If you do decide to test please leave some feedback so that if it works for you or not.

      Just to check the code over.

      It is not one of the plugins that I started so would not feel right about releasing a new version without yours or Aarons input.

    • I'd say Aaron is better suited for that than me. :whistling:
