Manual mysql_secure_installation on QNAP
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.
A geek look into QNAP TS-453mini with 16GB RAM
I bought a QNAP TS-453mini in order to replace the good old Synology DS409slim. Not that it doesn’t work. It’s just that the 4x 1TB disks are nearly full. I was desperately waiting for bigger 2.5" capacity but this doesn’t seem to happen. Also, since I moved into a new place, I planned to also reduce the number of plugged)in stuff. Hence, the fanless OpenBSD server would either go in the Cloud or… on the QNAP virtualization software.
