I am just after provisioning my first aws instance via forge and excited to get started
However, I'm having trouble connecting to mysql (pro, workbench)
I have been following this tutorial https://mattstauffer.co/blog/laravel-forge-hosting-on-aws which is great, but it stops short of configuring IPs and improving security.
Do I need to whitelist certain IPs from forge on my AWS security group?
I found this article https://forge.besnappy.com/laravel-forge And added the IP/32 to my Inbound SSH but still can't connect
Also, I'm not sure... do I need to use the .pem publickey that was generated or do I use the traditional id_rsa?
Just noticed too that if I add those IP from forge to my SSH security group, I am unable to login to forge via ssh ...
Hope someone can help me. Could really do with an article on maximizing security for aws + forge
And yes I have added my ssh key id_rsa to forge and have connected successfully to digital ocean before
