Full Description

This is a Dockerfile to set up for Plex Media Server

Instructions

Getting the docker image

Build from docker file

git clone git@github.com:htpcguides/unraid-plex.git
cd docker-plex
docker build -t htpcguides/unraid-plex .

You can also obtain it via:

docker pull htpcguides/unraid-plex

Running the docker image

Instructions to run:

docker rm -f plex
docker run --restart=always -d --name plex -h *your_host_name* -v /*your_config_location*:/config -v /*your_videos_location*:/unraid -p 32400:32400 htpcguides/unraid-plex

Setting up Plex

OS X or Linux

Open a Terminal window or your command prompt
Enter the following command (substituting the IP address of your server as appropriate):

ssh ip.address.of.server -L 8888:localhost:32400

Example:

ssh 192.168.0.212 -L 8888:localhost:32400

Open a browser window

Type http://localhost:8888/web into the address bar

The browser will connect to the server as if it were local and load Plex Web App

Windows

If you're using Windows on your local system and your server is on Linux or OS X, you'll need to use an application such as Putty that can create the SSH tunnel for you. You can use instructions like these for setting up the Putty/SSH connection. If following that, you would use this information:

Gateway: ip.address.of.server
Source Port: 8888
Destination: localhost:32400

Once you have the SSH tunnel set up:

Open a browser window

Type http://localhost:8888/web into the address bar

The browser will connect to the server as if it were local and load Plex Web App
