Overview

Given a typical Wordpress installation i.e., with MySQL running on the local machine this article will outline the steps to migrating the MySQL instance to Amazon RDS.

Procedure

1. Launch an RDS instance

2. Ensure security group rules on the RDS instance allow inbound traffic from the web server on the MySQL port (typically 3306).

3. Create a "backup" of the legacy database.

On the Linux instance
mysqldump --opt -u root -p database > database_YYYYMMDD_HHMM.sql
