What is the point of installing integration services without database engine?

My understanding is that the database engine feature of sql server enables us to create databases.

In the SSIS documentation, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/integration-services/install-windows/install-integration-services?view=sql-server-ver15#install-integration-services, it is mentioned that:

On the Feature Selection page, under Shared Features, select Integration Services.

Under Instance Features, optionally select Database Engine Services to host the SSIS Catalog database, SSISDB, to store, manage, run, and monitor SSIS packages.

What is the purpose that one would not select the database engine service while installing integration services?

It is clear from the documentation quote above that – if we do not select the database engine, then we cannot host the SSIS catalog db (ssisdb). So what is the purpose of such an install?

Installing Fluent Forms + Formidable Forms in the same website, would it affect loadspeed significantly?

I have some functional needs that would only be satisfied by using both plugins at once (since neither of them has all functionalities I need, but just some/half of these functionalities). I am thinking about installing both plugins instead. I do not mind about incurring in extra costs or about how to integrate both (I am already covered regarding those two issues). What I am concerned about is page loadspeed…..

Do you think having both plugins (which do the same) at once would impact load speed significantly? Would you recommend me to install both given my situation? Would it be worth it?

Also, can pls someone explain me how would they impact load speed? (through adding more js and css, through ajax calls, etc?)

Thank you in advance !!!!

Installing Patches on MS SQL Server Tips

Installing CU’s for Microsoft SQL Server I found I have an issue with the security software on my system.

After disabling the offending security software preventing my installation of patches and the repair process afterwards, I now have an issue with restarting the agent service.

Installing modifications on Battle Smith’s Steel Defender (5e)

I’m currently playing an artificer in a homebrew campaign and looking at the SD’s stat block, as well as other people’s opinions, it’s pretty much just a tank with its damage being negligible at best, so I was wondering if there are any balanced homebrew rules someone has made to install modifications on the SD, because that just seems to be the natural thing to do for a class called the Battle Smith. I’m not talking about putting infusions or magic items on the SD, but adding/swapping on its abilities and stats.

Of course my aim isn’t to make it OP, but more on to customize how I want it to be as well as make it scale better. I could just talk this out with my DM but I don’t want to have her make an entire ruleset on Steel Defender modification from scratch.

Installing only security updates is a mistake?

On my Debian, I only do security updates:

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main

deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main

For example, Debian recently migrated from 10.3 to 10.4, but I still use version 10.3 and automatically install available security updates.

Is that enough for security?

Help Installing WordPress on GoDaddy Hosting

Just wondering if I'm doing something spectacularly wrong here.

A client wants a site on his GoDaddy hosting account. After struggling through the GoDaddy menus for a while, I found Plesk and created an add-on domain with his desired .com. Then I used the add installer to install WordPress on the address.

And basically nothing works. I have installed and deleted about five times. What happens is I can get the basic site up, but no themes or plugins can be correctly installed. Whenever I…

Installing xampp on virtual box?

I started learning PHP and I wanted to practice PHP code using xampp or wamp server. But after reading this and doing some google research,I thought that installing server software on my home pc might be dangerous. I thought it would be better to install xampp server on a virtual box.
Is this a good idea? Is there any security concerns should i be worried about?
Is installing xampp server on a virtual machine is actually better than installing it on my home computer?

Doesn’t installing a TOTP client on your primary PC undermine the whole point of 2FA? [duplicate]

Authy is a popular cross-platform TOTP application that supports syncing keys across devices. I have been a little confused by the idea of having a desktop client… This way if someone accesses my primary PC they’d find all my passwords saved in my browsers, and would have access to my TOTP keys as well…
