Install in EC2 & RDS

Hi, i want to install passbolt in ec2 & keep the DB in RDS.
AWS AMI provided had apps & db in one package.
how can i set up web, app & db separately.

Thanks & Regards

Hi @poorni

When you configure passbolt in the web installation process (Step 2 on this page), you can provide the details to your external RDS database then.

Error while setting the own RDS in bassbolt configuratin “A connection could not be established with the credentials provided. Please verify the settings.”
But i am able to connect to RDS from EC2 and perform database activities.

Please assist.


Hi @poorni We’re working this out with another user as well. It may be the case that RDS does not like the port configuration when using the URL. Can you try to use the local IP or public IP of the RDS server instead of the URL?

Hi @garrett after creating the RDS, i did the below and its working.

  1. Added the security group in RDS to allow EC2 in my case
  2. “CREATE DATABASE passboltdb CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;”
    and in the connection i used the hostname not the ip

Thanks for reverting.
