I want to restore data from an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) DB snapshot. How can I do that?
You can restore data from both manual and automatic DB snapshots. First, select a DB snapshot that you want to restore from. Then, provide a name for the new DB instance that is created from the restore.
Note: When you restore data from a DB snapshot, you must create a new DB instance. You can't restore data from a DB snapshot to an existing DB instance.
Note: You can't restore a DB instance from a DB snapshot that is both shared and encrypted. Instead, make a copy of the DB snapshot. Then, restore the DB instance from the copy.
