SOME COMMANDS ON THIS PAGE IRREVOCABLY DELETE DATA
If you are unable to find your Plex server¶
THIS WILL DELETE ANY EXISTING PLEX CONFIGURATION SUCH AS LIBRARIES
Remove Plex Container (it may show "Error response from daemon: No such container" if not created yet):

THIS IS DESTRUCTIVE AND WILL DELETE ALL PLEX LIBRARIES AND DATA. THERE IS NO UNDO.
I understand the risk! Show me!

THIS WILL LEAVE ANY EXISTING PLEX LIBRARIES AND METADATA INTACT
- Remove Plex Preferences file.
sudo rm "/opt/plex/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Preferences.xml"

- On your local machine (the one that you uise to ssh into your saltbox machine):
ssh <user>@<yourserveripaddress> -L 32400:0.0.0.0:32400 -N
Of course, replace
<user> with your user name and
<yourserveripaddress> with your serveripaddress - no arrows
This will just hang there without any message. That is normal.
In a browser ON THAT MACHINE, go to http://localhost:32400/web.

On the "How Plex Works" page, click “GOT IT!”.
Close the "Plex Pass" pop-up if you see it.
Under "Server Setup", you will see "Great, we found a server!". Give your server a name and tick “Allow me to access my media outside my home”. Click "NEXT".

At this point, you may
