11. Upgrade micro instance to small instance in Amazon ec2

By: Emiley J : 2012-10-16

Description: Upgrading from a micro instance to a small instance or from a small instance to a medium instance is usually very straight forward. First you create an AMI Image of the current instance. Then once the image is created, right click on the image and 'launch instance'. Only this time you will choose the right instance type and then follow the default settings for the rest of the screens. Thats it you are done. If you have an elastic IP mapped to your old instance, just detach the IP and attach it to the new instance you created.
