WD My Cloud how to use MySQL?

Hi there,

I have a 3TB Single Bay MyCloud WDBCTL0030HWT-EESN.
I connected via ssh to check is there is already a mysql server installed.
I found out that there is already one installed and running,but i can’t access it.

root@WDMyCloud / # ps faux | grep mysql
 2704 root      2560 S    {mysqld_safe} /bin/sh /usr/bin/mysqld_safe --user=root --datadir=/mnt/HD_a4/.@database@
 2825 root     29056 S    /usr/libexec/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/mnt/HD_a4/.@database@ --user=root --log-error=/mnt/HD_a4/.@database@/WDMyCloud.err --pid-file=/mnt/HD_a4/.@database@/WDMyCloud.pid

root@WDMyCloud / # uname -a
Linux WDMyCloud 3.10.39 #1 SMP Thu Nov 15 21:22:21 CST 2018 2014T20p4 Build-git0451941 armv7l GNU/Linux

I already tried to access as root and admin:admin but i only get an access denied error.

How can i access it?

Hi PatientNr0,

I would like you to inform that you cannot use MYSQL with WD My Cloud.

For more queries please contact Western Digital.



Thats the MySQL DB for the Media features and is not something you gain access too.
