Plex Media Server doesn't work

Post by siddrajput »

Hello,

I installed Plex Media Server but it doesn't work. When I access it via a browser, I get the following error:

This site can’t be reached dietpi refused to connect.
Try:

Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Checking the status of plexmediaserver gives me this:

Code: Select all

root@DietPi:~# service plexmediaserver status

You did already update to v6.23 (or now v6.24), right?

Please try to reinstall Plex:
apt install --reinstall plexmediaserver
