  • Launch MySQL Workbench tool on your system
  • Click on the “+” icon to the right of MySQL Connections to open the new connection configuration window.
  • Enter a connection name – (for example, “aws-mysql”)
  • Hostname: the database endpoint URL which we obtained from the RDS instance details tab
  • Username: the Database Master Username configured above
  • Password: the Database Master password configured above
  • Default Schema: cluster (database schema for stream manager)
  • Click on Test Connection to verify you can connect. – if you are not on the system that was added as “my IP” when you created the RDS security policy, this may fail.
  • Click “ok” to save the configuration and close the window.
  • Download the Red5 Pro Server Distribution, and unzip it on your desktop.
  • Double click on the new connection you created to open the database workspace view.
  • From menu click => File => Open SQL Script, and browse the server distribution to find the cluster.sql file {red5prohome}/webapps/streammanager/WEB-INF/sql/cluster.sql
