I setup a Linux ec2, and got WordPress installed. After a few modifications to the site, I started getting errors like my site wouldn’t load, and my table I setup in dynamodb I named testdb was getting over 250 requests for the last 5 minutes. I even created two other tables, and I was even getting errors that those databases were getting high r/w requests.
I never specified to use those databases in dynamodb, so how did my ec2 know to use that db? And how do I change what database or table WordPress or future apps use? Isn’t that a security flaw if my ec2 can access any database it wants without asking me which one?
