How to restore MySQL dump to Amazon RDS database?
To restore an SQL dump to an Amazon RDS database, you can follow these steps:
First, you need to create an RDS instance with MySQL compatibility, if you don’t have one.
Connect to your RDS instance using the MySQL command-line client or a MySQL-compatible tool of your choice.
- Run the following command to create the database:
CREATE DATABASE [DATABASE_NAME];
- Use the following command to import the SQL dump file to the newly created database:
mysql -h [RDS_ENDPOINT] -u [USERNAME] -p[PASSWORD] [DATABASE_NAME] < [SQL_DUMP_FILE].sql
Replace [RDS_ENDPOINT], [USERNAME], [PASSWORD], [DATABASE_NAME] and [SQL_DUMP_FILE] with the appropriate values for your RDS instance and the SQL dump file you want to import.
When prompted, enter the password for the user specified in the command.
Once the import process is completed, you should be able to see the imported data in your RDS database.
Note: It’s highly recommended to take a snapshot of your RDS instance before doing this operation, in case of any issues you can restore from the snapshot.
With Amazon GUI
To restore an SQL dump to an Amazon RDS database using the Amazon Web Console, you can follow these steps:
In the Amazon RDS web console, navigate to the “Databases” page and select the RDS instance that you want to import the SQL dump to.
In the “Actions“ menu, select “Restore from a DB snapshot or DB cluster snapshot”
In the “Restore DB instance” page, select the “From S3” option and then select the appropriate S3 bucket and file name of the SQL dump file
In the next page, you can configure the settings of your new RDS instance, such as the instance name, storage, and security settings.
Click on the “Restore DB Instance” button to start the import process.
Wait for the restore to complete. A message will appear in the web console when the restore is done.
Now you can check your RDS instance and you should be able to see the imported data in your RDS database.
Please note that when using this method, the SQL dump file must be stored in an S3 bucket and the RDS instance should have the appropriate permissions to access the S3 bucket.
