I am relatively new to Amazon Web Services and I am trying to find the best way to move my instance from a free to a paid tier instance, i.e. from t1.micro to m1.small.
My current infrastructure is as follows:
- 1x EC2 t1.micro - Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS 64bit (with 1 EBS volume)
- 1x Micro RDS Instance
How can I clone my t1.micro instance along with the EBS backed volume and launch it in a m1.small instance?
Will this be a case of creating my own AMI of the instance and booting this on a new EC2 instance? If so, will creating this image create a snapshot of the EBS volume as well as my LAMP stack - my current Apache, PHP and MYSQL configurations?
Thanks in advance.
