Configuration to serve Plex Media Center https://plex.tv using Nginx https://nginx.com
This configuration will allow you to serve Plex via Nginx.
Plex: * Remote Access - Disable * Network - Custom server access URLs =
https://:443,http://:80* Network - Secure connections = Preferred. *
Note you can force SSL by setting required and not adding the HTTP URL, however some players which do not support HTTPS (e.g: Roku, Playstations, some SmartTVs) will no longer function.
UFW or other firewall: * Deny port 32400 externally (Plex still pings over 32400, some clients may use 32400 by mistake despite 443 and 80 being set). * Note adding
allowLocalhostOnly="1"to your Preferences.xml, will make Plex only listen on the localhost, achieving the same thing as using a firewall.
