Because I was unpleased with power management using QTS 4.3beta, I decided to see what Synology DSM would do on the QNAP TS-453mini. I installed DSM 5 using XPEnology. It’s not clear if that’s legal or not. But as it is just there to decide if I keep the QNAP or buy a real Syno… :)
I wanted to share users authentication and permissions between the QNAP TS-453mini and my OpenBSD servers. An option is to enable and manage LDAP server on the QNAP and configure OpenBSD 6.0 to authenticate the users on the remote LDAP service.
Just for fun, I wanted to install the “Metro” theme for phpMyAdmin on my QNAP TS-453mini. It’s not automatic from the Web interface but it can be done via the shared folders.
I have installed the SQL server on my QNAP TS-453mini but couldn’t find the
mysql_secure_installation script. As far as I understood it, it simply changes the root password, disable remote sensible access and deletes the test database. So I decided to run the commands manually inside phpMyAdmin.
