Build Apps Using MySQL Databases, Hosted in AWS

I made a quick video showing how to connect your app to a MySQL database hosted in AWS. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!


Thank you very much for this tutorial.
One question: Do we really need to change the Type to “All Traffic”? Or is “All TCP” also possible?

Hi Fabian- thanks for watching! I used “All Traffic” in the demo as a starting point that will always work. But yes, you can increase security by ratcheting this field down to a more restrictive value. “All TCP” will work just fine.
