Rails dies again

Change Lobot instance type on EC2

We are running on a c1.medium( 1.75GB memory, 5CU) and want to change to something like m1.large or m1.medium with more generous memory allocation. What would be the best way to do it? Change the type from EC2 console or start from scratch?


New Severe Rails Vulnerability

It is recommended for everyone to upgrade immediately to patched version.
