Plex Requests

Plex Requests is a simple automated way for users to request new content for Plex. Plex Requests runs on its own port; 45332 has been automatically generated for you, but you may use another 5 digit port between 10000 and 65535.

Meteor

Plex Requests requires Meteor to be installed on your slot.

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