Plex Media Server not starting on Slackware Linux on reboot? I tried a couple of different things but eventually got it to start by doing this...

While logged in as the root user or sudo user, type the following to make that file exectuable.

chmod +x /etc/rc.plexmediaserver
chmod 755/etc/rc.plexmediaserver
crontab -e

Add @reboot /usr/local/plexmediaserver/ --daemon to your crontab. Reboot and check if Plex Media Server is running.

./rc.plexmediaserver -start|-stop|-restart doesn't work but it at least gets Plex running on reboot. I need to dig into it more to figure out what's up with that.
