You have installed all upgrades and made the VPS your own in Part 2 - Updating the VPS.
Now is probably the moment you usually install Plex, Rclone and Plexdrive as covered in part 3 and part 4 of the first tutorial. This too can be automated without any input from you after you have set your Plex preferences.
Creating the script
Open Notepad++ on your local computer and create a new (empty) file. Make sure you change the bottom bar to show "Unix (LF)".
Paste the following into your file:
# Install Plex
bash -c "$(wget -qO - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mrworf/plexupdate/master/extras/installer.sh)"
# Install Rclone
curl -O https://downloads.rclone.org/rclone-current-linux-amd64.zip
sudo cp rclone /usr/sbin/
sudo chown root:root /usr/sbin/rclone
sudo chmod 755 /usr/sbin/rclone
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/share/man/man1
sudo cp rclone.1 /usr/local/share/man/man1/
sudo rm -f rclone-current-linux-amd64.zip
sudo rm -r rclone-*-linux-amd64
# Install Plexdrive
sudo mv plexdrive-linux-amd64 plexdrive
sudo mv plexdrive /usr/local/bin/
sudo chown root:root /usr/local/bin/plexdrive
sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/plexdrive
# Install PlexPy
sudo git clone https://github.com/JonnyWong16/plexpy.git
# Cleaning up
sudo rm /tmp/install-plex
# End message
echo " You can now proceed with restoring your scripts "
# To run this file copy the line below without the # and paste in PuTTY
# sudo wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/yourpersonallink/yourfilename?dl=0 -O /tmp/install-apps && sudo chmod +x /tmp/install-apps && /tmp/install-apps
Save this file with an appropriate name, upload to Dropbox and copy the link as you did with the first script. There will be four scripts in total:
You can pick whatever file names work best for you though!
Running the script
To run this script, select the entire last line without the red part and without the # and copy this to the clipboard.
Then log into PuTTY with your own username and right-click to paste the script.
Here is an explanation of what this script will do:
- Plex will be installed and configured (this will require your input).
- Rclone will be installed.
- Plexdrive will be installed.
- Tautulli (PlexPy) will be installed as well.
Feel free to add other programs you wish to install with one click - after all, this is your configuration!
Now that Plex, Rclone and Plexdrive are all installed in "vanilla" status, you can now forward to Part 4 - Part 4 - Restoring Rclone and Plexdrive configuration where we'll get really personal.
