RDS support lower_case_table_names setting in MySQL

How table and database names are stored on disk and used in MySQL is affected by the lower_case_table_names system variable.

With the new feature, you can set case sensitivity for table names while creating an instance, or change the value of the case sensitivity parameter after the instance is created.

If your instance runs MySQL 5.6 or 5.7, you can change the value of lower_case_table_names after the instance is created.

You can specify case sensitivity for table names when creating an RDS for MySQL 5.6, 5.7, or 8.0 instance on the console.

Important: The case sensitivity of table names for created RDS for MySQL 8.0 instances cannot be changed.
