To connect MySQL with AWS, you can follow these steps:
- Launch an Amazon RDS instance:
Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon RDS console.
Click on "Create database" and choose the MySQL engine.
Configure the necessary settings like DB instance class, storage, security group, etc.
Specify your preferred master username and password for the database.
Click on "Create database" to launch the RDS instance.
- Set up Security Group:
In the EC2 service, open the EC2 dashboard.
Click on "Security Groups" from the sidebar and create a new security group.
Configure inbound rules to allow access to the MySQL port (default is 3306). You can set it to allow connections from your IP address or specify a specific IP range.
- Connect to the RDS instance:
Go back to the RDS console and select the instance you just created.
In the "Connectivity & security" tab, note down the endpoint of your RDS instance.
Using MySQL client software (e.g., MySQL Workbench, MySQL command line tool), enter the endpoint, username, and password to connect to the RDS instance.
That's it! You have successfully connected MySQL with AWS RDS.
