April 26 – PGX Update

From 19 April, we have spent time to optimize our test box in order to prepare for better testing, overhaul the forum for continued simplicity, and of course making life harder for the spammers. We are continuing to work on the wiki via @ https://plexguide.com/wiki/ and have now included a section to deploy a Proxmox (free version of ESXI) to better help assist you! PG now runs on Proxmox with continued-better backups! Thanks vFlagR!

So great to hear updates from you Admin9705! News to look forward every week.

Side questions for those that know more than the Linux beginner I think I am. By chance is there a forum post or chat that described the benefits of Proxmox ( I was hoping for more info than the Proxmox wiki page).

For those that may know more,
1. Other than some of the ones listed in the wiki, Why would one prefer Proxmox more than say Ubuntu server? I base this question on the later questions since I do not know how PGX will be implemented in Proxmox. I also infer there are reasons for mentioning Proxmox in the post that also makes me think there was some discussion or debate somewhere.
2. The Wiki mentions it is free($. think), but I tried an install, and every time I log in / update (that also fails) it tells me "You do not have a valid subscription for this server. Please visit www.proxmox.com to get a list of available options." Am I missing something?
3. Would PGX run in a VM in Proxmox or would it be using the base Debian install that Proxmox is based on? I read that Proxmox also manages containers but I think they are different from Docker containers.
4. Will Proxmox be the preferred OS for PGX?


The feature "Can place a priority of a virtual machine/container over another if resources become constrained!" sounds great though.

no proxmox is free. They just nag I case you want to purchase support. There is a way to turn it off. No proxmox isa Hypervisor so it’s not an issue for plexguide, just a way to take a powerful server and run multiple virtual machines or vps of sorts.
