Plex Media Server Startup soci_error

A good friend of mine recently ran into an issue where Plex Media Server running on Fedora¬† would not start up. After multiple times trying to start\stop it, deleted pid files, removing subsys lock files, discovered that /var was full, so it couldn’t write something during startup which was causing it not to start.

Receiving an error similar to this:

Starting PlexMediaServer: terminate called after throwing an instance of 'soci::soci_error'

Searching Google wasn’t much help, just a bunch of guys saying to optimize sqlite and\or reinstall Plex.

Started looking at the filesystems and found that /var was filled up.  This was causd by another process filling up the space. After freeing up space in /var/log it and allowed Plex to start no problem.
