I'm quite new to both Rclone and Linux so apologies off this sounds silly or is basic.
I have setup Rclone with Gdrive and Plex on a VPS which is working fine. I have now tried to do the same on a dedi that will solely run Plex. I have installed Rclone, Fuse, setup the Google Api etc and all seems to be ok. One thing I'm not sure about is the rclone.service file. I was expecting to find this in /etc/systemd... but it is not there. I'm assuming there is one as Rclone is running and did so after a re-start. Am I missing something or is this not needed?
I have also added a cron job to re-mount my drive on reboot using:
rclone mount gdrive: /home/gdrive --allow-other --buffer-size 256M --dir-cache-time 96h --timeout 1h --umask 002 --daemon
Does this look correct? I did read about utilising cache for Plex, is this recommended?
Thank you! I have found online that I needed to manually create the rclone.service file.
Do I need the service file if I am running the @reboot mount command as a cron?
I did / was following the go to guide but I think I ended up confusing myself unfortunately. I added the rclone.service file after editing it for my config and I broke it... the service would not start and after a reboot the mount did not appear. If I take that out and re-start the mount re-appears automatically from the reboot command in cron
I have removed the cron to save confusion.
When I attempt to start the rclone.service I receive rclone.service failed because the control process exited with error code. I'm unsure as to find out the error though?
