Order of Install? PiVPN, VNC, Plex, PiHole...

Tue Aug 11, 2020 11:01 pm

Hello! I've got a brand-new Pi4 that I would like to setup to run 1-PiVPN, 2-VNC, 3-Plex, 4-PiHole, 5-FlexTV, in order of importance. I just tried adding Flex as the last service and it broke everything, so I reformatted and want to start again. Is one order better than another? Can all these services co-exist at the same time?

Thanks!

VNC comes preinstalled with rpiOS. Just enable it.

I remember when I installed pivpn, it asked me at some point if I had pihole installed, so I would do pihole then pivpn.

Everything else can be installed afterwards.

Hi, I know it's an old-ish topic, but I just encountered a similar issue. VNC was activated and was working fine, and after installing PiVPN it doesn't connect anymore. Any idea why? Maybe install PiVPN first and activate VNC after?
