Delete a MySQL Database on Amazon RDS

  1. Go to Amazon RDS Console: Return to the Amazon RDS console.
  2. Select Database: Click on "Databases," find the instance you want to delete, and then choose "Delete" from the Actions menu.
  3. Confirm Deletion:
    • You'll be asked to create a final snapshot (like a backup), but for this example, skip that.
    • Confirm that you want to delete the instance.
    • Click on "Delete."

Note: It might take a few minutes for the deletion to complete.

That's it! You've successfully deleted the MySQL database instance.
