Keeping Plex Media Server up to date?

Hey guys, I've set up a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ as a Plex Media Server via the jessie installer. I've noticed when I log into my PMS web interface and noticed it advises there is an update available, and got me thinking as to if anyone has any commands/scripts as a way of making sure it's kept up to date....

Hey all, Just got my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ working as a Plex server pulling the library from my NAS. I have created a simple bash script called mountnas.sh to mount the NAS drives again for whenever the Pi reboots, as they don't automatically remount: #!/bin/bash sudo mount -a I have edited crontab -e w...

Re: How do I mount NAS Network Shares

I'll try that when I get home. When you say "immediately after I try to mount the drives", what do you mean? All I'm doing is editing the fstab in nano and then rebooting the Pi, should I be manually doing something else after that to try mount them?

Re: How do I mount NAS Network Shares

Dang it, I just tried the code I typed above and it doesn't appear to have worked. I have rebooted and the folders still not showing anything. Is it because my SMB share folder TV Shows has a space in the name maybe or have I typed the code wrong?

Re: Connection refused when trying to SSH

Thanks I'll try creating the file. I used the GUI to enable SSH. I do have a monitor connected to the Pi. I can ping it, and also created a DHCP reservation for it on my router so it's IP never changes.

Re: Wake on LAN server

Thanks heaps. Can you use it to create a script with a schedule for WOL? I can then just set the PC power settings to auto shut off after say 2 hours. Also what OS is that package on? Rasparian?

Re: Turn RPi 3 on with remote?

Thanks so much for everyone's replies. Looks like there's not really a solution for what I was after, so for the moment I just won't turn it off. Might buy a Flirc v2 case for it so it keeps nice and cool.
