Re: Trust, indeed

"Ah, an 'expert' - an expert with no experience of the subject that is."

An example, Plex Media Server:-

*1. Windows*

Download the Windows Installer .exe file

Run the installer

Follow the usual installation method

At the final screen, click the Launch button. If you don't select this, launch the Server from the Start button

The Plex Media Server will launch and install an icon to the System Tray (bottom right of the screen) To setup the Plex Media Server, choose Media Manager... from the Plex icon in the system tray.

2. *Linux*

Ubuntu

Download the .deb package

run sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver_0.9.8.18.290-11b7fdd_amd64.deb (replacing the last filename with the name of the package you downloaded)

To setup the Server, on the same machine you installed the Server on, open a browser window, and go to http://127.0.0.1:32400/web.

Note: The Plex Media Server runs as the user "plex" by default. The plex user must have read and execute permissions to your media directories and files! For more details on how to do this, see the Linux Permissions Guide.

Did you spot that command line "run sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver_0.9.8.18.290-11b7fdd_amd64.deb (replacing the last filename with the name of the package you downloaded)"?

Did you see the difference between Windows and Linux? I rest my case....
