At work, I needed to import lot of data in a MySQL database, instead of importing from a VPS or a local machine I decided to use S3 storage (that is also way cheaper to keep temporary data). In this tutorial, I will show you how to create the AWS infrastructure to import from S3 to RDS (Aurora) MySQL using Terraform. This tutorial assume that you previously created an AWS RDS cluster and an instance in it.
