Restoring from an Amazon RDS Instance to Another Amazon RDS Instance

Perform this procedure from Amazon RDS SQL client where you performed the backup.

When you perform this type of restore, the Amazon RDS database instance name and physical path do not need to be edited because the restore goes to the default path.

If you just change the database name to perform an out-of-place restore to the same instance, it does not work because the database file name already exists in the default path.

Before You Begin

Perform a full backup. For more information, see Backing Up Amazon RDS SQL Databases.

    The Cloud Apps page appears.
