What is the Path for Plex?

Post by Skeptical.me » Wed Jan 29, 2020 4:30 am

I'm trying to find Plex's path in my TS-253Be QTS 4.4.1.1146 for my sftp client, could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks for any help, much appreciated. :DD

via SSH do

Code: Select all

getcfg -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf PlexMediaServer Install_path
to find it

mine is

/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer

Although, the installation path is usually called 'Install_Path'. ;)

Hmm... could be. Or else the Plex package is using a different key/value pair. :'

Bingo! That worked. Thank you very much. I've made a note in my Standards Notes app, so I will have a reference if I need to know again. I don't use these commands often enough to remember. So thanks again.
