MySQL

Databases are automatically provisioned for each environment.

Developers are allowed to provision multiple MySQL databases per environment.

Usage

The following example demonstrates how a upgrade D8 project might provisions 2 databases to test migrations:

  • Default database for the application.
  • Secondary database containing D7 version of the site.

.skpr/defaults.yml

services:
  mysql:
    default: {}
    migrate_d7: {}

Apply this configuration by running skpr deploy.

Config

The Skpr platform provides connection details via the config system.

$ skpr config list prod
 ──────────────────────── ─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
  KEY (20)                 VALUE
 ──────────────────────── ─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
  mysql.default.ca.crt     /etc/skpr/certs/mysql.default.ca.crt
  mysql.default.database   xxxxxxxxxxxx
  mysql.default.hostname   xxxxxx.yyyyyy.ap-southeast-2.rds.amazonaws.com
  mysql.default.password   [secret]
  mysql.default.port       3306
  mysql.default.readonly   xxxxxx.yyyyyy.ap-southeast-2.rds.amazonaws.com
  mysql.default.username   [secret]
 ──────────────────────── ─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

Read-only Endpoint

Skpr provides a read-only endpoint which can we used for database intensive queries.

Scenarios might include:

  • Analytics
  • Dashboards
  • Backups

This endpoint is provided by the mysql.*.readonly config.
