Setting up Plex on Ubuntu Server 14.10

In this article I will show you how I installed Plex Media Server on Ubuntu Server 14.10.

 

There are no nice packages on any Ubuntu repo, so we will need to get the deb file from Plex's website.

 

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2/plexmediaserver_0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2_amd64.deb
$ sudo gdebi plexmediaserver_0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2_amd64.deb

 

To remove Plex Server

$ sudo apt-get remove plexmediaserver

 

Once you have installed Plex Media Server, you can access it remotely via the web frontend http://<yourservername>:32400/web/manage

 

Good Luck!
