Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

I’ve been making guides to macOS Server since Server 2:

And along the way, I’ve also sold about 25,000 books on Mac Servers. After teaching so many how to use the services that Apple made available in their server operating system, when they announced they’d no longer be making many of the services my readers have grown dependent upon, I decided to start working on a guide on moving away from macOS Server. 

And then there are tons of all-in-one small business servers solutions, including Buffalo, Qnap, NetGear’s ReadyNAS, Thecus, LaCie, Seagate BlackArmor, and Synology. Because I happen to have a Synology, let’s look at setting up the same services we had in macOS Server, but on a cheaper Synology appliance:

  • Setup A New Synology NAS
  • File Services
  • DHCP Services
  • DNS Services
  • VPN Server
  • How To Use Search Functionality
  • Sync
  • Web Services
  • Web Application Services
  • Backups
  • Xcode and Git Integration
  • Directory Services
  • Chat Services
  • Backup iOS Devices With Acronis TrueImage
  • Install WordPress
