Manage MySQL on a Synology DS409slim

Here’s the way to install, run and manage MySQL on a Synology DS409slim.
My DiskStation runs DSM 3.1-1748.

First of all, activate the MySQL dæmon:

  • From the Control Panel, choose the Web Services ;
  • Enable Web Station and Enable MySQL ;

Then install and configure phpMyAdmin:

  • From the Download Center, grab the phpMyAdmin package ;
  • From the system menu, select Package Management ;
  • Click the Install button select the phpMyAdmin package ;
  • Follow the wizard and Run the package ;

Then you can browse to http:///phpMyAdmin/ to access the software.
The default credentials are root and no password at all. So the first thing to do will be to set up the MySQL password. But that’s basic phpMyAdmin operations ;-)

That’s All Folks!
