Error Launching a new Lightsail instance from snapshot


I am trying to create an instance from a recent backup after my server stopped working, however when I try to create an instance I get the following error: "Error CreateInstancesFromSnapshot[us-east-2]

This instance cannot be created because the source snapshot was created from a blueprint plesk_ubuntu_17_5_3_28 that isn't supported by the bundle xlarge_3_0 (a newer bundle type). To create an instance from this blueprint, choose an older version of this bundle type.



I tried using all the available other bundles, where can I find older version of this bundle type to restore my instance?

Hi there!

Sorry to hear you're having this issue. If you're seeing this error through the Lightsail Console, please confirm you are following these steps:

If the error still is unresolved, instead try using the following CLI command to restore your instance:

aws lightsail create-instances-from-snapshot \
    --instance-snapshot-name {enter your instance snapshot name here} \
    --instance-names {enter your instance name here} \
    --availability-zone us-east-2a \
    --bundle-id xlarge_2_0 \
    --region us-east-2

Is your recent backup a manual snapshot or an automatic snapshot?

  • If your snapshot is an automatic snapshot, use the following CLI command rather than the above command:

    aws lightsail create-instances-from-snapshot \
        --source-instance-name {enter your source instance name here} \
        --use-latest-restorable-auto-snapshot \     
        --instance-names {enter your new instance name here} \
        --availability-zone us-east-2a \
        --bundle-id xlarge_2_0 \
        --region us-east-2
