Shane shows you how to
restore data from an
Amazon RDS snapshot


I want to restore data from an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) database (DB) snapshot. How can I do that?

You can restore data from both manual and automatic DB snapshots. To restore data from a DB snapshot, follow these steps:

  1. Use the Amazon RDS console, AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), or the Amazon RDS API to restore a DB instance from a DB snapshot.
  2. After the DB instance is available, modify its parameter group and security group to match the groups associated with the DB instance you restored from. The newly restored DB instance is initially assigned to default parameter and security groups.
