Installing PHP/SQL on WD EX2 Ultra

Just starting out in the Dev world and want to know in very simple terms how to install some thing like MAMP stack on my EX2 ultra which until now has been used purely as a file storage and Mac backup.
Any advice or references would be greatly appreciated and apologies if this has been covered elsewhere already


Are you using OS3 or OS5?

Your device is not a My Cloud Home!!

What difference does it make?

I’m not sure which reply you are asking about but OS3 or OS5 could make a difference in what you are trying to do.

See if the owners of this device can answer your question?

There are two sub-topics for the WD EX2 Ultra, one for OS3 and the other for OS5!!!

Do you want help from other owners of the WD EX2 Ultra or those who don’t and probably will not reply to your topic!

Sorry I should say that it’s a brand new EX2 ultra so not even out of the box yet, so possibly could configure it to OS5 but probably comes with OS3.
