Just a quick write up on the install to my Plex QNAP deployment.

Kudo's to HaroldH with http://forums.mediacentermaster.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=8376&start=0 which gave me the head start to getting things running on the QNAP.

This guide presumes that you know how to SSH and SFTP into your QNAP. If you don't know this, use Google, plenty of info out there.

Download the 'Plex agent & scanner (other)': Home page->Downloads, the Download Menu item from other pages does not contain the link.
Extract the contents and store them somewhere ready to transfer. My extract folder was d:\MCMPlex_1.5_linux.
SSH into your QNAP and run "getcfg -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf PlexMediaServer Install_path" (from https://forums.plex.tv/t/qnap-faq-read-me-first/109942#Q11)
In my case my Plex install is '/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer'

Using SFTP (or other working file transfer mechanism), transfer files like this:
You may need to manually create some of the directories in the path.

D:\MCMPlex_1.5_linux\Plug-ins\MediaCenterMaster.bundle
-> /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer/Library/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins

d:\MCMPlex_1.5_linux\Scanners\Common\*.*
-> /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer/Library/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins/Scanners.bundle/Contents/Resources/Common

d:\MCMPlex_1.5_linux\Scanners\Common\MCMCustomVideoFiles.*
-> /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer/Library/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins/Scanners.bundle/Contents/Resources/Movies

d:\MCMPlex_1.5_linux\Scanners\Series\*.*
-> /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer/Library/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins/Scanners.bundle/Contents/Resources/Series

d:\MCMPlex_1.5_linux\Scanners\
-> /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer/Library/Plex Media Server/Scanners

d:\MCMPlex_1.5_linux\Scanners\Common\MCMCustomVideoFiles.*
-> /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer/Library/Plex Media Server/Scanners/Resources/Movies

Restart PMS via SSH or web console
SSH - $(getcfg -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf PlexMediaServer Install_path)/plex.sh restart
Console - Open App center and stop then start the app.

Good luck!

There is a separate installer for windows Plex deployments. I think it auto detects and installs to the correct location. Only *nix based installs need manual placement of files.

So no answer means there's no such information?
