I currently have an alias to connect to a remote server:

alias server='ssh user@ec2-00-00-00-000.compute-1.amazonaws.com'

I would like to have an alias to connect to this server, and then automatically open mysql terminal.

Currently, I connect to the server and then run:

mysql

manually.

Is there anything like:

alias serverdb='ssh user@ec2-00-00-00-000.compute-1.amazonaws.com && mysql'

but to be executed on the remote server?

Leave off the &&. It probably will work better if you force a tty as well (the -tt below).

alias serverdb='ssh -tt user@ec2-00-00-00-000.compute-1.amazonaws.com mysql'
