*For users flagging out of date*

Please note that PlexPass users get access to later versions than non-plexpass users. Thus this package will be behind when newer versions come out.

You will want to flag
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/plex-media-server-plexpass/

Please do not flag this as out of date unless you go here (and are not a plexpass user/logged in) and see a newer version

@doctor Adding to the comment from @carbncl, try regenerating your system locales and/or reinstalling glibc. That worked for me.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Locale#Generating_locales

sudo pacman -S glibc

@doctor, had recently the same issue, your locale isn't set properly on your server.
Look into https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/plex-media-server-plexpass comments for more details.
I bet we are hosted by the same company with a bugged installer... ;p

@skeptikos, libbost is packaged with Plex, not the system version. It should be in the same dir as the main plex bin but for some reason it cannot find it easily. Check your plexmediaserver.conf.d to make sure it is exporting the correct lib location.

Getting following error:

/opt/plexmediaserver/Plex Media Server: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_atomic.so.1.59.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or d
irectory

Libboost is at 1.64 at this point.

@precrisk

Sounds like a transient networking issue. Can you manually run this and have it work?

wget "https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/1.8.1.4139-c789b3fbb/plexmediaserver-1.8.1.4139-c789b3fbb.x86_64.rpm"

PS. DONT WORRY, IT COULD BE A TEMPORARY ISSUE, TODAY I TRIED SECOND TIME AND IT SOLVED

@techwiz thank you too much. I have moved the media folder to '/media', I have changed the owner to 'myuser:plex' and I have changed the permission to: 'chmod -R g+w /media'. It works now.

techwiz commented on 2017-08-16 11:24

@j1simon I have my media in a media folder in my root dir and I've created a group called media that I added both plex and myself to. That way you can give the group RW permission and both you and plex can access the files. The owner can remain you if you wish.

j1simon commented on 2017-08-16 11:15

With every update I have to edit systemd service file to change user/group by my user. The folder with movies/series is in my home. This folder has to be accessible to my user. Is there any way to avoid having to edit the file each time?
