I am currently working on a project that requires me to connect my PHP application to a cloud-based database such as Amazon RDS or Google Cloud SQL. I've been searching for ways to configure PHP to work with these cloud-based databases, but I haven't had much luck finding a clear and concise guide.
I would greatly appreciate it if any of you could provide me with some guidance on how to set up PHP to interact with cloud-based databases like Amazon RDS or Google Cloud SQL. Specifically, I am looking for steps or instructions on how to configure PHP to establish a connection, how to handle authentication, and any other considerations or best practices I should keep in mind.
Thank you in advance for your help!
