Using Amazon RDS for Applications（日本語版）Go to Lab
How can I be sure that my drupal site actually switched to my RDS instance and not continued to use localhost? It would be good to include a step to restart drupal or turn off the local mysql to convince me i was actually using RDS.

Had problems will need to redo it.
Consider adding follwing step after DB is switched to RDS instance: sudo service mysqld stop
