So I have a micro instance for my new pet project www.tryperl.com. The micro instance is maxed out and I decided to change it to small.
I followed the accepted answer here on this SO post. However, I cannot get it to work for the life of me!
I created snapshot from my small inst volume.
I created an AMI from the snapshot and launched a new small instance
(My small inst is set in us-east-1b and my micro in us-east-1c, does it make a diff?)
The small instance starts and takes forever for status checks and then fails saying
Instance reachability check failed.
When I click view rules on my security group, it says
No rules were found in the associated security groups??! But I'm SURE the security group does have http@80 open!
I'm currently trying a reboot
Should I just stop my micro instance and change it's type? Are there consequences ? I know I'll have down-time. How much downtime will occur??
What else can I try?
