Plex Media Server – 404 Not Found Issue [RESOLVED]

If you have recently installed a new Plex Media Server and when you load the manage URL you see a big 404 Not Found.  Fear not, this is a simple fix thanks to this forum entry.

Plex Media Server is dependent on rsync but is not installed automatically like it should be. Run:

sudo apt-get install rsync
service plexmediaserver stop
service plexmediaserver start

Then try again!

    In the servers command line? How would I access that. It is not an option when I right click the systray icon for plex.

    sudo =/= a command in [winkey]+r->cmd

    I run win7

    Can I get some help with this. I downloaded Putty, logged into my Synology NAS and enter the first line of text above “sudo apt-get install rsync”. The SSH indicated that this was not a valid command. Do I have to go to a different folder and run this command or do I do it from the root directory?

    If you are using CentOS, try: sudo yum install rsync.

    However, rsync is already installed on my system and I still get the 404 error.

    Plex is a complete bug ridden overpriced joke.
