Plex Requests

Plex Requests is a simple automated way for users to request new content for Plex. Plex Requests runs on its own port; 31690 has been automatically generated for you, but you may use another 5 digit port between 10000 and 65535.


Plex Requests 1.21.2 requires Meteor 1.2.1 to be installed on your slot.

  1. Install Meteor 1.2.1 by running curl https://install.meteor.com/?release=1.2.1 | sh. When sudo prompts for a password, press Ctrl+C to exit.

  3. Run Plex Requests: cd ~/plexrequests-meteor followed by screen -dmS plexrequests ~/.meteor/meteor -p 31690

Your PlexRequests WebUI will now be available at http://server.whatbox.ca:31690
