Is It Possible to Connect to Amazon RDS Directly via MySQL Command?

No, you would SSH to your Pagely VPS then connect via there. The database is not directly accessible – it’s only available to the VPS instance.

The Pagely architecture utilizes two separate AWS services for serving your WordPress applications – Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS. With each fully managed VPS hosting plan, customers receive a dedicated EC2 instance to process traffic requests utilizing a detached RDS shared amongst a small handful of customers.

Proper security and management protocols are applied to ensure website data aren’t commingled on the default shared Amazon RDS. We also have the option to provide a dedicated RDS at a range of sizes at an additional fee.
