This is an old nagging problem and it pops up everytime I am installing a specific app like owncloud, Kodi etc which requires a sql user account. I would connect from different devices in my LAN thus preferring one user per app which is defined in MariaDB5 or 10 like


thus allowing access from any host. This never works! :evil: Never! I always have create 3 users for 3 hosts each with the proper hostname otherwise the connections are always refused.
Is this something specific about the Synology instalation or do I simply not understand SQL syntax enough?
