Emby Server on my NAS and how to upgrade it

Emby server is installed on my NAS. You know, my NAS is about 6 years old and is powered by a U-NAS server system. Right now it is version 4.0.6.

There are not many things running on it. I used it mainly for file sharing, BT, and backup. Additionally, I am running an EMBY server on it.

Emby is just a personal media server platform. You need a server to install it and also have your own media file. Emby does not provide any media files.

It also supports live TV if you have the Live TV tuner.

Here is an example screenshot of the Windows 11 Emby App.

Now I am going to show you how to upgrade the Emby in this NAS.

First, you should know the NAS is built on the Debian system.

Second, the Emby server is already installed. The current version is v4.6.7.

Now it is time to do the upgrade.

 

 

wget https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases/download/4.7.6.0/emby-server-deb_4.7.6.0_amd64.deb
sudo systemctl stop emby-server
sudo dpkg -i emby-server-deb_4.7.6.0_amd64.deb
sudo systemctl start emby-server

After the upgrade, I sign in to the browser control panel. Dashboard page.

It is quite simple.  I still need to do a few restarts to make everything updated. Especially for the plugins.
