Keywords: WordPress - AWS - How to - Credentials
I've inherited the task of maintaining a small business site, the only credentials they have is for their AWS account on Amazon and their WP admin. Significantly, there is no private key file in order to do FTP, SSH, etc. From my understanding, I can get a new key pair with a clone of the instance. That seems straightforward. My question is, can I simply launch the cloned instance in place of the original - meaning that the domain name, IP address, etc. will all work as before? Can I stop the original instance and launch the clone, with no other configuration involved (but with a new key pair!). Sorry if this question seems basic, I don't want to do anything to jeopardize the live small biz site. Thanks in advance!
