      Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

      I host parts of the omv-extras.org Repository, the OpenMediaVault Live Demo and the pre-built PXE Images. If you want you can take part and help covering the costs by having a look at my profile page.
    • The more you do things from the cli, the harder it gets to fix the problem. Moving to /var/lib is definitely unsupported.

      Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

      If that does not work do this:

      apt-get --purge remove openmediavault-plexmediaserver
      apt-get --purge remove plexmediaserver
      userdel plex

      And then try to reinstall the plugin... I have not seen your problem before. (edit- I have seen this a lot.)
      THIS! Someone please give this man a cookie! I was going nuts trying to reinstall Plex. I tried uninstalling and purging, but I never thought of deleting the old Plex user. I had to reinstall Plex due to a hard drive migration, but the installer kept looking for the old HDD. Perhaps some old configuration files where kept under the plex user folder, which messed with the new installation
