Move an instance to a different availability zone

Bitnami Cloud Hosting allows you to move instances to different availability zones but not to different regions for the moment. Please follow these steps:

  • Stop the current server.

  • Create a backup.

  • Once the backup finishes, click “Restore” next to the new backup.

    Server restore

  • In the resulting dialog, click the “Advanced Options” link and specify the new availability zone.

    Server restore

  • Click “Restore”.

  • Once the server is running in a different availability zone, un-assign the static IP address from the old server (if one was assigned to it) and reassign it to the new server.
