How to upgrade Plex Media Server on Ubuntu
By: Kevin | March 30, 2015
Almost every time I need to upgrade my Plex Media Server I always forget the command and end up consulting the Google. So this post is for me,.. and hopefully help someone thats in the same boat as me.
- Go to Plex.tv
- Click on downloads -> Computer -> Linux
- I’m using Ubuntu on an old machine so I right click on 32-bit and copy link
- On your Ubuntu box paste the download link like so,
wget https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/WHATEVER-VERSION/plexmediaserver_WHATEVER-VERSION.deb. This will download the update.
- Next run
sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver_WHATEVER-VERSION_i386.debto install the update.
- Easy peasy, your done.
I like to reboot the machine after updating, just for good measure.
