Can't run Plex in docker on OMV

Once upon a time (a few weeks ago) I had plex running in a docker on odroid hc2. In an effort to update plex I ended up reinstalling OMV and docker and linux/plex. Plex will not run. ANY IDEA what is happening?


I looked thru the commands and logs you provided. I couldn’t spot a problem, though maybee this is because none of both was part of your post :wink:

sorry wasn’t sure what to post.
here is the docker log

[s6-init] making user provided files available at /var/run/s6/etc…exited 0.

Let me summarize what we have so far:
– plex was running on odroid hc2
– plex is not running on OMV when a container, based on the linuxserver/plex image, is used
– A snippet of the container logs - showing not a single error

I am currious: do you feel that you expressed the situation well enough?

I think thats accurate

Oh, I see. I hope someone else will be able to help you!

Me too I am about to give up on both docker snd plex.

I am using Plex inside a Container for more than 3 years now.

Last try: how do you start the container (ui screenshot or exact docker run command) and what is the exact problem you are experiencing. So far none of this important details was provided! Don’t get me wrong, but I won’t answer your next response if those details are still missing.

It is run inside of the openmediavault ui. I have no idea what details you are looking for. I am by no means an experienced docker or linux user. That may be the issue I simply don’t know enough to use docker.

here is a screen shot of the container settings

Everything that was involved between creating the container and experiencing the problem at hand!

It is easier for me to filter out unncessary details than getting no details at all.
So, please add screenshots from ALL details, even if they are only remotly related to the topic.
