You can connect to the Aurora database on Amazon RDS database as follows:

  • Obtain the endpoint for your RDS instance from the “Outputs” field of the RDS stack in your CloudFormation deployment, as shown below:

    RDS host information

  • Log in to any application instance using SSH.

  • Use the mysql command-line tool to connect to the Aurora database, as shown below. Replace the HOSTNAME placeholder with the actual endpoint for the Amazon RDS instance.

      $ mysql -u root -p -h HOSTNAME

    You will be prompted to enter the root user password. This is the same password you configured when deploying the solution.
