YAMS comes with a very handy CLI to manage your media server. Here’s where you’ll learn how to use it.
On your server, you can type:
And you’ll get the following message:
yams - Yet Another Media Server
Usage: yams [--help|restart|stop|start]
--help displays this help message
restart restarts yams services
stop stops all yams services
start starts yams services
destroy destroy yams services so you can start from scratch
check-vpn checks if the VPN is working as expected
Everything is very self-explanatory, but I’ll go in more detail here:
restart: Restarts all the services. It stops them gracefully and starts them again.
stop: Stops all the services gracefully.
start: Starts all the services.
destroy: Destroys all the services so you can start the configuration from scratch. ⚠️ Be careful! ⚠️ There’s no going back after this!
check-vpn: Checks the IP of the qBittorrent service and compares it to your own IP. If they are the same, it’s going to warn you.
If you get a
docker permission error trying to use the CLI, go here to fix it.
