Plex WebTools

Plex WebTools is a plugin for Plex that allows installation of extra modules including subtitle management.

WebTools runs on its own ports; 53728 and 59631 have been automatically generated for you, but you may use other 5 digit port between 10000 and 65535. This guide will set it up to use HTTPS, however the HTTP port still needs to be unique.
