What You Will Learn
- How to delete your Redis Cluster and your MySQL database when they are no longer needed
Delete your Redis Cluster
In order to delete your Redis Cluster, go to the ElastiCache Dashboard and follow these instructions:
5.1 — Select “Redis” on the left pane.
This will show you a list of all your Redis clusters.
5.2 — Select the Redis Cluster you created for this tutorial.
5.3 — Click on “Delete”.
5.4 — You will be asked if you want to create a final backup.
That’s usually a good idea, but it’s not necessary for this tutorial. Select “No” and click on “Delete”.
The status of your cluster will change to “deleting”.
Delete your MySQL database
5.5 — Navigate to Amazon RDS console and select “Databases” on the left pane.
5.6 — Select the database you created (i.e., “database-1”).
5.7 — Click on “Actions” and select “Delete”.
5.8 — You will be asked if you want to create a final backup.
That’s usually a good idea, but it’s not necessary for this tutorial. Uncheck the box for “Create final snapshot”.
5.9 — Check the box for “I acknowledge…”, type “delete me”, and click “Delete”.
