Another question (sorry, I know you're here for answers πŸ˜‰): are you attempting this with a life-and-in-person Forem?

If I understand @jdoss correctly, you either need to

stop your Forem, dump the DB, import it to the RDS and then edit the Forem configs to point it at your RDS instance


start it from scratch for Ansible to write these changes

If not, this is curiouser and curiouser (and I'll be happy to continue relaying questions to our team for ideas on why it's not working).
