Right now, I am running my private blockchain on aws ec2(t2.medium) using geth. I am just curious that later on is it possible to upgrade that aws ec2(t2.medium) instance to aws ec2(t2.large) instance? If yes, then What steps I have to follow for that?

Upgrading the existing ec2(t2.medium) to ec2(t2.large) will in no way affect the migration of private blockchain as long as you ensure that following directories from t2.medium are moved to t2.large:

  • geth
  • keystore

Also, make sure to move the history file.

The directories geth, keystore must be located in a directory which was mentioned as a parameter to --datadir when launching the private network using geth.

And, yes, the RPC endpoint will change i.e. --rpcaddr and if you have specified a websocket endpoint that too will change i.e. --wsaddr

Thus, the steps would be moving geth, keystore, history from t2.medium to t2.large
