How to migrate your EC2 MySQL Instance to RDS

How to migrate your EC2 MySQL Instance to RDS

The other day I had to migrate a couple of databases from an EC2 MySQL instance to RDS. I couldn’t find a decent example of how to do this so I wrote this up.

Some of you might ask why do you want to do this? You get more control with EC2 than RDS. The reality is the EC2 instance ran out of RAM, and I didn’t want to build out a new box.
