Plex WebTools

Plex WebTools is a collection of utilities to help with the management of your Plex Media Server.

Installation

To install Plex WebTools, log in via SSH then copy and paste the following commands:

wget -q https://github.com/ukdtom/WebTools.bundle/releases/download/3.0.0/WebTools.bundle.zip
unzip -q WebTools.bundle.zip -d ~/private/plex/storage/config/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Plug-ins
rm WebTools.bundle.zip
rm ~/private/plex/delete-this-file-to-restart-plex

After a minute Plex will restart and activate the plugin.

Accessing Plex WebTools

WebTools runs on port 33400 on a private IP that can be accessed by connecting via OpenVPN. Run the following command to find the private IP:

grep ip-address ~/private/plex/detailed-status

You should see a response similar to: ip-address=10.x.y.10 (where x and y are numbers specific to your slot). You can then connect via OpenVPN and visit http://10.x.y.10:33400/ (where x and y were found from the earlier command).
