Integrating Amazon RDS With WordPress
Inthis blog, I am going to integrate WordPress with Amazon RDS. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups. It frees you to focus on your applications so you can give them the fast performance, high availability, security, and compatibility they need.
Integration with RDS and WordPress
What is DataBase :
A database is an organized collection of data so that it can be easily accessed and managed. You can organize data into tables, rows, columns, and index it to make it easier to find relevant information. Database handlers create a database in such a way that only one set of software programs provides access to data to all the users.
Relational Database Service is a distributed relational database service by Amazon Web Services. It is a web service running “in the cloud” designed to simplify the setup, operation, and scaling of a relational database for use in applications.
This helps us to create a complete Database setup easy and maintenance automatically.
WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) written in PHP and paired with a MySQL or MariaDB database and web publishing software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. Let’s start.
