    • Migrating from Plex plugin to Plex container

      Just got the docker plugin working for OMV and was wondering about getting my plex server to run in a container instead of the plugin. As I read it, eventually OMV is just going to support containers and is moving away from plugins.

      I'd like to keep the index DB from Plex since it took so long to create in the first place. Is there a way to simply import this once the container is up and running? Is there anything else I should be thinking of?

      thanks in advance!

      Thanks for this! I regret not looking at some other threads here to see that my questions has (more or less) been asked at least a few times in the first few pages. Sorry about that, I actually thought my question was that stupid that no one else had it!

      Thanks again!
