I'm working on a website hosted in a VPC on AWS. Yesterday, we moved the mysql server from a EC2 instance to a RDS instance to allow the mysql server to perform better. So, before, when I wanted to restart the database server I could connect trough ssh to the EC2 instance and execute the following linux command:
service mysql restart
As I can see, the RDS instance is prepared to serve mysql but not to execute linux commands. Am I right? Does it mean that I have to restart the hole instance to restart the mysql server?
