default VPC

I deleted my default virtual private cloud (VPC) in Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). How do I restore my default VPC?

Every AWS account has one default VPC for each AWS Region. If you delete a default VPC, you might experience problems launching Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in that Region.

It isn’t possible to restore a deleted default VPC. It also isn’t possible to select an existing non-default VPC as your new default VPC. Instead, you must create a new default VPC.

To create a new default VPC using the Amazon VPC console or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), see Creating a Default VPC.
