Deploying a Wordpress site using AWS RDS and free tier EC2 instance - Hands-on

Project Status: Active – The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed.

I'm currently preparing AWS Certified Solution Architect - Associate certificate.
The following gist is intended to anyone looking to launch a Wordpress blog or website on AWS.
We gonna be using Amazon RDS (Amazon Relational Database Service) as well as an EC2 instance.
I performed this setup on my Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.
To check your OS version, execute $ lsb_release -a in your Terminal.

Installations

None. Just log into your AWS management console, https://console.aws.amazon.com.
You'll need to perform several tasks in your CLI regarding SSH keygen, so make sure you check the following prerequisites.

Prerequisites

First, make sure Oracle jdk is installed. I recommend java 1.8.0
To uninstall effectively your current jdk, perform this:
$ sudo apt-get remove openjdk*
$ sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove openjdk*
$ sudo apt-get purge openjdk*
$ sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove openjdk*

To install java 1.8.0, open Terminal Ctrl+Alt+T and run the command:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java // adds PPA repository
$ sudo apt-get update // updates package list
$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk // installs openjdk

java-8.png
$ javac -version // shows your new java version
