Power was cut for a short while at home and when we got Plex up and running again, all of the metadata I had spent months cleaning up etc. had vanished! I have been able to download the database backup from three days previous (which would be fine) but how do you restore from that database? I’ve seen plenty of instructions for people running as plex server from a windows or linux box, but nothing to say how you do it from a WD My Cloud Home? Any pointers?
Nobody ever done this?
Sorry I can’t help, I’m aggravated as well, and have just started researching the issue. I hate losing all my customized metadata, every time Plex has an issue, and re-doing it. Have you found anything regarding the problem? From what I’ve found, Plex can backup your data, via scheduled tasks, mine is found at; /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/plex_conf/Plex Media Server/Plug-in Support/Databases. Now it gets a bit hazy, I’m pretty sure everything is done through a command terminal, accessed via SSH, but the exact procedure is unclear, still researching.
I’m assuming no luck in finding an answer? Does nobody at WD or Plex care about WD MyCloud Home users?
