April Plugins Update

Another Plugins update has been released. The updated versions are now available for new installs in the Plugins ⇾ Available section of the UI. Existing plugin installations can be updated to the new versions using the CLI instructions in this post.

Before updating a plugin, always read its hyperlinked Release Notes first to determine if the update will impact your existing plugin configuration. This is especially important for major version bumps such as the update of Bacula from the 9.2 series to the 9.4 series or the update of Emby from the 3.5 series to the 4.0 series.

To update a plugin, go to Plugins ⇾ Installed and note the name of the plugin in the Jails column. Then, open Shell and type this command, replacing jail_name with the actual name shown in Plugins ⇾ Installed.

iocage update jail_name

Note that you will need to restart the plugin once the update is finished.

    Please make a tutorial how to clone a plug-in, aplay update there and see if everything works. Or snapshot the plug-in, update and see if works and how to revert if it doesn’t. Thank you.

    We have plans to make this much easier in 11.3. Right now iocage automatically creates a snapshot before the update. In 11.3, the Plugins UI will add buttons to mount/umount/rollback snapshots and to manually create one (say before making config changes).

    I did this for Plex and now it doesn’t run at all. Plugin version says NA.

      Seems what happened on mine is I have the plexpass version of plex and the plugin updated to the non-plexpass version and broke everything. Its like its a new system and nothing is configured.

    broke my install as well, rolled back with the snapshot and everything is working in 1.14 version again.

    Please create a ticket, with debug attachment and plex logs from /Plex Media Server/Logs

    I did the update and my Plex is now broken. Is there any way to fix it? I am on version FreeNAS-11.1-U7. Do I need to update the 11.2? I can’t believe that my Plex broke with an update. I have been updating for about 2 yrs without an issue. I have plex pass media server, may be that is this the issue? Is there any way to restore to the old version?
