Ultimate Plex Server

This is my first guide and I will try to make a complete guide on setting up a Plex linux server (Ubuntu 18.04 minimal here)
I will try to this in 2 parts, in this part i will install qbittorrent (multiple instances), Plex with custom scanner, Sonarr( To automate TV shows downloads, vsftpd and jackett (indexer)
1)Update and upgrade all repositories using
2) First let us create folders, users and grant proper permissions, I will be creating 2 users with directory /Media/Family and /Media/Friends
For added security make the chmod /qBittorrent-conf as 2770 and assign it to a group and add family and friends user to that group
3)We will now move on to install 2 instances of qBittorrent using systemd
3.1)Now make 2 systemd files named qbittorrent-(user1).service and qbittorrent-(user2).service
and edit it
2nd file as, change User, Group fields accordingly, change webui-port and profile directory
3.2)Turn qbittorrent-nox On and Check if the config files are okay
If status shows as active (running then try to access the qBittorrent using ip-address-of-server:8080 for user family and ip-address-of-server:8081 for user friends, change save directory in qbit settings as /Media/Family and /Media/Friends respectively and try downloading some sample file, Now
Now, we have 2 instances of qbittorrent-nox running with separate directory, Now onto Plex
4)To install plex
4.1)If status shows as active (running), reboot server
open cmd and type
Type yes on promt, then enter password for root(or any other user)
4.2)open browser and goto localhost:8888/web
setus using GUI interface, for media folders add /Media/Family and /Media/Friends
4.3)Now to add custom scanner for better scanning


Access the plug-in by clicking on three dots near the category (eg. TV Shows) then go to manage library then edit then advanced then change scanner to absolute series scanner
5)Now to install sonarr using docker


Now, change /Media/Family to respective directory in the following code, Find group and user ID.
You can have a sub-folder named TV to better organize the data
similarly add another program named sonarr1 etc. with user2 directory
5.1)Access the sonarr using ip-address-of-server:8989 and go to system-- >settings-- >Download client-- >qBittorrent-- >enter all the asked details
To enable password on Sonnarr go to settings-- >general-- >security

Now you can add a indexer manually or use the next installation called jackett to enable,
6)Installing Jackett (torrent indexer/API for sonarr)

6.1) Go to ip-address-of-server:9117 to access Jackett, click on add indexer and add the ones you want then click on copy torznab feed and API Key.
now goto Sonarr-- >settings-- >indexer-- >torznab-- >custom-- >for anime add category as 5070 in anime field, in URL paste torznab feed and API Key in API, choose a name of your choice and add password to Jackett

Ultimate Plex Server I would like to build a custom pc for the sole purpose of serving up as many simultaneous plex streams as possible (hopefully at least 10 at a time?). I think money is no object, but ill probably need to be convinced of some major benefit to spend over 6k (not including HDD's). Set the location of of the Plex Media Server data directory (Windows only). (Default is “C: Users ComputerUser AppData Local Plex Media Server”) D: Data PlexData logDebug 1/0 Sets whether “debug” logging is enabled. 1 LogMemoryUse 1/0 Set Plex Media Server to log memory use and the system total used memory in Plex Media Server logs. My Plex server is an i5 quad-core NUC and it downsamples to 1080p perfectly fine for remote streaming. Plus I get to enjoy full resolution on my TV when I’m at home. For my eyes, the increase in sharpness with 4K is easier to spot than the color dynamics of HDR, so being able to keep just one copy of the file for every purpose is more worth. Plex media server allows streaming your locally owned digital media content to various devices inside or outside your home. Simply put, it is a DIY Netflix. Plex recently added support for free movies. In addition, it is also possible to play IPTV on Plex. Usg openvpn nordvpn.
