UNSOLVED Hosting on RDS



  • OK. Dan, I have a fusionauth dir on my RDS mysql. But when I go to myURL:9011 it asks for my userid and password. Then it opens to this screen.

    What is missing is my hard won FA setup from my local server. What do I need to copy up to the RDS to get my existing FA config up on RDS?



  • @richb201

    If you set it up manually on your local server, you will have to manually copy the changes up.

    If you scripted your changes, you should be able to run those changes against your new server.

    This forum post has more info: https://fusionauth.io/community/forum/topic/549/how-can-we-migrate-fusionauth-configuration-from-dev-qa-to-prod?_=1612832204162



  • There is this open issue which addresses some of the migration concerns; please feel free to vote it up if it is of interest.



  • Thanks Dan. I have been battling with Docker to get AWS Secrets Manager going and I am just about done. I will be moving over the VMware. I have loaded a vbox on my laptop (even though I am already in Linux) so I can do complete install on it. I will still be using RDS.

    Can you point me at any docs you have for installing in a vmWare box? How does it work with multiple instances? I am using passwordless and I will need to specify the address of fa:9011 for each box. Or would you suggest just one copy a fa?



  • Turns out that AWS uses Docker not vmWare so I'm back to docker.



  • Ah, makes sense. We don't have specific VMware instructions; I'd imagine it'd work with a zipfile. But it sounds like you figured it out.



  • I am back to Docker but still having issues my FA docker install no longer working. Here is the database ENV I am using. Does this normal?

      DATABASE_URL: jdbc:mysql://database-2.cwymdn16cxes.us-east-1.rds.amazonaws.com/fusionauthdb


  • Looks good to me. Probably a good idea to make sure you can connect to that database with the username and password you set in the environment from your container. RDS instances are behind a security group, so you need to make sure your requests can get through that.

    I do see you shared more of the error message on another thread. Maybe you need to add the port number (:3306, just before /fusionauthdb) ?

    I'm not going to mention this more than once, but wanted to let you know that you can get a FusionAuth Cloud server provisioned and maintained for as little as $75/month (pricing correct as I write this). Not sure how much time you are spending getting your remote server up and running, but it may be worth considering 🙂 .

    I agree this is getting way too painful.

    I changed back to using my local mysql. For some reason silent config mod is still showing its "ugly" face.

    Could be because I no longer have my fa table. I am not sure what happened to it? Clearly this problem is way above my "pay grade".

    I relaunched my Ec2 instance and now I am able to at least use URL:9011 and the UI opens up.

    But I still get the error above when I "docker up".



  • Are you talking about the Illegal reflective access error message?



  • yes, for one thing.



  • You can safely ignore that. It's a java warning based on some of the libraries on which we depend, I believe. If you can provide the version of java you are using and the OS version, I can file a bug.
