How to increase or decrease AWS EC2 instance size.
Even with an optimized aMiSTACX stack running on a t-micro, sometimes we just need even more server horsepower.
Thankfully AWS makes this very easy! In a few clicks you can increase your EC2 instance size. This means more CPU and more RAM at your fingertips. Plus you can decrease the size in the same way.
This comes in handy when you need to run big tasks that require a lot of CPU, and it can save you a lot of time and money.
Step 1. From EC2 console, Select and Stop Instance you need to size.
Step 2. From the “Actions” menu select >> Instance Settings >> Change Instance Type
Step 3. After modifying and saving, restart instance.
