I am running an EC2 server with Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. But there are things that aren't working properly on it. CPAN won't install any modules, the MYSQL service keeps falling over, etc.

So I want to "factory reset" it and start all over again.

Is there any way to do this but keeping this instance and its elastic IP address?

Elastic IP addresses do not change even when you delete an instance which it is attached to. You can always connect the Elastic IP address to another instance.

So, instead of “factory reset”, you can:

  • Create a new instance for the same AMI

  • Attach that Elastic IP address to this instance

That’s it.
