@olimazi, I prefer to add the Plex user to a group like “media” and manage file permissions using the group settings. Just “chgrp -R media /mnt/media” and “chmod -R g+rw /mnt/media”

Also, I would recommend not mounting your drives in your home directory as only your user can enter, and that might be preventing Plex from crawling the mount location.

Good luck.

Can't get the PMS AUR package to see my auto mounted internal NTFS drive sub directories, I have them mounted via FSTAB: UUID=THE-UUID-YOU-COPIED /home/canelesso/ssd250 ntfs-3g auto,nofail,uid=1000,gid=1000,utf8,umask=022,defaults 0 0 which works fine, so must be a Plex permissions issue. Tried editing the service config in: /etc/systemd/system/ and changed the user from 'Plex' to my own, but didn't work. Thanks for your help guys. [the Snap package of Plex was able to see my directories, but I'd rather get the AUR working]

When the server crashes, it says it has written a log to /var/lib/plex/Plex Media Server/Crash Reports/<version>/, but all the folders are empty. Any ideas?

Yes. I would recommend adhering to their firewall suggestions as well, though.

@darose 'The fix is available in Plex Media Server v1.21.3.4014 or newer.' So it seems that we are OK.

Whew, I thought I'd rolled it too far forward and everyone would be stuck.

@fryfrog I'm sorry about that I am getting a weird glitch with getting a server update.

Edit: Rebuilding the package seemed to fix it for me. Sorry about flagging the package out of date.

@DaOfficialRolex, why do you think it should be Their site says

@fryfrog:. I build in a clean chroot always and never had any issues. No issues reported in any llogs while using it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
