Download Plex Media Server Version for Mac OS Lion 10.7
Today I launched my plex media server running on my 2007 MacMini running MacOS Lion 10.7.5 and a big orange button said 'UPDATE AVAILABLE.' Seeing that, I decided to stop using my brain and click it in excitement for all the potential new greatness that awaited (even tho my server ran rock solid already). What happened after the upgrade terrified me; a finder error stared at me saying this version of Plex Media Server is not capable of running on Lion, you must now have Mountain Lion. Shit, aaaand now my daughter is screaming at me to play her Little Einstein videos.
Good news, I DO use my brain from time to time to cover my ass. Here's a the last version of Plex Media Server that runs on MacOS Lion 10.7.5 system.

On my Plex media server I run the Plex Media Server as a service, and the one issue that I had was not being able to update Plex from within the Web dashboard. The reason is that when running Plex Media Server as a service Plex is running as a service, any update through Plex can’t be done because the service needs to be stopped first before any updates can happen.
For me, another issue was that the Plex Media Server runs under a standard user account on my Windows 10 machine, and a standard user account can’t perform any application installs, which leads to another reason for me to disable Plex auto updates.
While I can’t have Plex auto update to the latest version, I have found another way of accomplishing the same goal. I created a small application called Plex Server Auto Updater that will perform the same update task when Plex is running as a service.
The Plex Auto Updater makes it easy to update Plex when the Plex Media Server is running as a service. The updater will automatically perform the tasks that you would normally need to take when updating Plex.
Since the Plex Auto Updater needs to install the Plex update, the updater needs to be run under an administrator account. If you are logged in as a standard user, you simply need to right-click the Plex Auto Updater executable and select “Run as administrator” to allow the updater to perform the update.
The following actions are performed when the updater is run:
The updater will update Plex regardless of where Plex is installed, where the Plex local data directory is located, and which user account is running the service.
I created the Plex Auto Updater so that it is portable, which means it doesn’t need to be installed. It is a single executable that can be saved and run from any directory on your machine.
To get the Plex Auto Updater and use it, follow these steps:

Before running the Plex Auto Updater, it is important to first have Plex automatically download the latest updates. The Plex Auto Updater will check these downloaded updates to determine if it should install a newer version.
To enable Plex to download updates automatically, use the following steps:
Once the above steps have been completed, and an update has been downloaded, the Plex Auto Updater can now perform the update.
Of course, you can simply run the Auto Updater executable, but the point is to have it update automatically without any user intervention. This can be done by simply scheduling a task to run the executable at a specified time.
Once Plex Media Server has been configured to download any updates, you can now schedule the Plex Auto Updater to automatically check the updates to see if one is available.
To avoid updating the Plex Media Server when you are streaming media, you will want to schedule the updater at times when the media server won’t be streaming any media, such as early morning.
To schedule the Plex Auto Updater, use the following steps:
When the above steps is completed, you should have a task scheduled to run the Plex Auto Updater at a specified schedule, and using the administrative user account.
This application solves the issue I had when running Plex as a service and not having the ability to update Plex automatically. With the portable application I created, I can now schedule Plex updates so that my Plex Media Server has the latest release.
