In here I intend to simply explain how to change the Plex database path in Ubuntu.
For a bit of background my Plex database is over 130GB in size (last I checked) and my boot drive is 80GB while my media drives are 3TB. Naturally storing the Plex database on the media drives (that get backed up to each other too) makes sense.
So lets say you’re celebrating May 4th properly (May the 4th be with you) and you decide to add Harmy’s Despecialized Edition of the original Star Wars trilogy to your Plex Movie collection.
However you already have the Original Star Wars, from VHS, DVD or Bluray, in your collection and you want to keep it and display them separately.
Thankfully Plex, as always it seems, has a solution.
