Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

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

And along the way, I’ve also sold plenty of books on Mac Servers and gotten a lot of opportunities I might not have gotten otherwise. So thank you to everyone for joining me on that journey. 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:

And performing some similar tasks on the ReadyNAS, if you’d rather throw your hat in with Netgear:
  • Install and Configure a ReadyNAS
  • Keep updates well, up-to-date on ReadyNAS
  • Install File Services on ReadyNAS
  • Connect to ReadyNAS from a Mac
  • Configure web services on ReadyNAS
  • Install WordPress on ReadyNAS and import data from macOS Server
  • Time Machine backups to ReadyNAS
  • Configure VPN Services on ReadyNAS
  • Installing and managing DNS services on a ReadyNAS
