OMV system drive is full

  • You need to make sure you delete the plex user before reinstall:


    userdel plex

    I will try that. I have upgraded to OMV 5, then i found some threads on the forum which directed to "rm -rf /var/lib/plexmediaserver". I did that, then i used instructions for installing plex docker i found from google https://dbtechreviews.com/2020…plex-on-openmediavault-5/

    Plex is running, but now the problem is Plex, for some reason, cannot see my media folders.

    Should i still "userdel plex"?

  • Did you create binds to your media folder.

    Maybe best to post your configuration (screenshots or docker-compose file)

    and the setup

  • You defined PGID and PUID. PGID is "users" on OMV. Have the users access to the media files on filesystem level?


    Which user has the specified PUID?

    problem was solved by going thru OMV web GUI, click shared Folders, then selecting Plex shares, editing the "ACL" of each, and changing recursively the owner to Plex. then re-add libs in plex interface, and rescan libraries.

  • We need to keep running the command on subdirectories to find what is causing it. du -d1 -h /var/lib/


    If you have plex installed, that is probably what is filling it.

    I've got this far with reading over the contents of this thread, but I've got another culprit than Plex filling my system drive.



    Problems may have started following one of the two following system updates, though I'm not sure:



    Here is the output of the 'du' command.


    Code
    root@hypervault:/var/log# du -d1 /var/log/pcp/ -h
    12K /var/log/pcp/pmproxy
    2.4M /var/log/pcp/pmie
    25M /var/log/pcp/sa
    52K /var/log/pcp/pmcd
    2.5G /var/log/pcp/pmlogger
    2.5G /var/log/pcp/

    I can't find info elsewhere on the forums about PCP or pmlogger, so I'm not sure whether/how to fix/remove.


    Any advice?
