I have not been able to find an answer online so I thought I would ask here. I have setup an Amazon Lightsail instance to act as a development platform for my website. I have setup SSH for accessing administrative tools such as PHPMyAdmin. Would this be sufficent in terms of being able to securly access PHPMYAdmin and upload files or should I be using SSL aswell?

    You should always use HTTPS. – MechMK1 Aug 14 '19 at 9:12

I am guessing you are talking about Secure socket tunneling to run the localhost on the remote server as given here.
The secure socket tunneling protocol already does SSL/TLS provides transport-level security with key negotiation, encryption and traffic integrity checking.wiki
That should be sufficient.

  • So that would also count when i use the website (Sending and recieving data from the db) through the localhost? – Chris Aug 14 '19 at 4:02
