Creating a new Lightsail Instance from Snapshot - ERROR


I am trying to create a new (larger) instance from a snapshot. When I go through the steps I receive the following error message:

Error CreateInstancesFromSnapshot[us-east-1] Sorry, you've reached your maximum limit of Lightsail Instances: 2. If you're new to Lightsail, please try again later. If the issue persists, please contact Customer Support.


I thought we could have up to 20 instances. How can I fix this issue, or am I limited to 2 instances?

This can sometimes happen, especially with new accounts. In the error message it should be giving you a link to contact Customer Support. If you follow that process, you can ask them to raise the limit on your account so you can create more Lightsail instances.

You can contact AWS Support regarding account-related matters and costs. Please contact AWS Support by opening a case under "Account and billing" to increase limit.
