Installing Plex Mediaserver Centos 6

So I use plex for my media and i have a small server running with my plex server on it.
and here is how I install plex server on my home centos server.
This guide will work on several Linux dist

1. Grab latest plex server

go to https://plex.tv/downloads and choose the one best match for you system

I got

wget http://downloads.plexapp.com/plex-media-server/0.9.8.18.290-11b7fdd/plexmediaserver-0.9.8.18.290-11b7fdd.x86_64.rpm

Install the package

rpm -i plexmediaserver-0.9.8.18.290-11b7fdd.x86_64.rpm

Start the plex server

/etc/init.d/plexmediaserver start

Then from MY UBUNTU LAPTOP i run

ssh -f root@192.168.44.2 -L 2000:localhost:32400 -N

Where 192.168.44.2 is my ip to my centos/plex server

Then from MY UBUNTU LAPTOP i start chrome and browse to

http://localhost:2000/web/index.html#!/dashboard

And after plex is configures its up and running and you can start using plex.
