I installed the new Plex Media Server 3rd party application on my DS712+ but was having a problem with the shortcut not working. When I clicked it, it just went back to the main DiskStation 4.0 home page. After some searching I found the fix.
The Plex Media Server shortcut points to: https://My
Diskstation IP Address:5001/webman/3rdparty/plex/plex.cgi
(I use https for my connections, your shorcut might point to http)
Actual file path: /usr/syno/synoman/webman/3rdparty/plex/plex.cgi
I found that the second line of my plex.cgi file was different than the one show here:http://forums2.plexapp.com/index.php/user/47932-joad/page__tab__posts
if [ '
ifconfig |grep -q bond0' ]
if ifconfig |grep -q bond0
Once I edited the file in vi, removing the brackets and the quotes, the shortcut started working.
It should be noted that I am using the 2 network connections on the DS712+ as an aggregated link or "Bond", so this bit of code may not appear in the plex.cgi of users with only 1 network connection.
Hope this helps in case anyone else is having the same issue.
P.S. If any guru's out there can clarify what brackets and quotes are used for in cgi scripts (for commenting out code maybe?), I would appreciate it.
