Getting Started with MySQL Database Service
Overview of the tasks required to get started with a MySQL DB System.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a set of complementary cloud services that enable you to build and run a wide range of applications and services in a highly available hosted environment. MySQL Database Service relies on several of those services. As such, it is strongly recommended you read the following:
Before you begin using MySQL Database Service, the following is assumed:
- You have created a tenancy and are able to sign in to it.
- You have created a compartment to store your resources. You can store everything in the root of the tenancy, but compartments are recommended good practice.
- You, or your group, have been granted the policies described in Mandatory Policies.
The next steps are as follows:
- Create a VCN using the VCN Wizard, as described in Configuring the Network.
- Create your DB System and attach it to the newly created private subnet, as described in Creating a MySQL DB System.
- Create a Linux Compute instance, as described in Creating a Compute Instance.
If you are using one of the VPN connection type described in VPN Connections, it is not necessary to provision a Compute instance to enable connections to your DB System. With one of these VPN solutions, you can connect directly to your DB System's endpoint from your local network.
- Connect to the MySQL DB System endpoint, using MySQL Shell or MySQL Client, as described in Connecting to a DB System.
