You can back up your MySQL Amazon RDS databases using SimpleBackups similar to how you back up MySQL databases.

You will need to:

  1. Obtain the database credentials and the endpoint (hostname) shown below
  2. Allow SimpleBackups to connect to your Amazon RDS database

Step 1. Obtain the database credentials and the endpoint (hostname)

Step 2. Allow SimpleBackups to connect to your Amazon RDS database

To do this, you can either add your server to SimpleBackups assuming that your server is whitelisted and can connect to your RDS instance, or you can use one of our cool features which is the Stand-alone Database Backup Server. 

If you decide to use the Stand-alone Database Backup Server, you can add it by going to the servers page on your dashboard and clicking "Enable Remote Database Backups".

Afterwards you will find a server added under your account which you can use when creating database backups. Don't forget to whitelist the following IP addresses and allow them to connect to your database.

Once the server is added you will need to grant it access to your RDS database by following this tutorial.
