@avpnut
For you it's better to use drive-montorring.


Command for authorization

Code:
sudo docker exec -it plexautoscan /usr/bin/python /opt/plex_autoscan/scan.py authorize
when i had this installed directly on the server and not in a docker container i did have drive monitoring active. i just noticed your instructions, i will do so. thank you for all your help. I just wish i know why it wasent working for me.

I setup the drive monitoring per the instructions. it seems to be working based on the logs. i just wanted to ask you if i setup the server path mappings correctly. I made a seperate line for each folder location and one for each teamdrive and my drive because i use both atm. media is my team drive location. see screen below

i did run the authentication and it does seem to be working, i just wanted to make sure those mappings were correct.
thank you so much for your help.

I thought I had this set up correctly, but cannot for the life of me figure out why autoscan can't connect to plex - see below log error.

I feel like plex and 32400 are standard, so I'm not sure why it can't connect? I've been able to connect sonarr and radarr with the same settings (connecting to plex without autoscan).

ConnectionError: HTTPConnectionPool(host='plex', port=32400): Max retries exceeded with url: /myplex/account (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x7f4b11b78810>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno -2] Name does not resolve',))

Any help with this would be great.

I managed to update rclone and restarted the pgsca n service but still didn't work.
Also running plexguide and going into transport settings then pulled down rclone 1.48

Currently in docker container, this error
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 127.0.0.1 port 3468: Connection refused

Having some issues getting this set up. I've adjusted the json file as instructed and got the docker running successfully but I can't get it working in sonarr. the test always fails. I'm getting the following error from Sonarr.

Request Failed. POST /api/v3/notification/test: DNS Name Resolution Failure: 'plexautoscan'

Any help much appreciated. Sorry if I missed this posted elsewhere.

I see that you have a different problem... I saw in github changes about two days ago. I dont know but I think that is something with that because I didnt do nothing and now dont work. Its a pitty because plexautoscan is really great, I cant image normal plex scan again :(

Think my issue is the same, as I had the same error as well. I had tried upgrading rclone, but still didnt help.

So i'm using the script that was attached at the start of this thread for the docker sabrsorensen/alpine-plex_autoscan ( pgscan.zip.)

I have now uninstalled plexautoscan as I was getting no where with it after it broke. I have installed it again, and followed your direction but I still get the same error.

In the config json - I am pointing the rclone config to /opt/appdata/plexautoscan/rclone/rclone.conf
But I still get the same error. Restarted the docker with no joy.. can you give me some further assistance.

thanks
