This topic describes how to downgrade the instance and then renew the instance after the instance of apsaradb for RDS expires.
Alibaba Cloud reminds you that:
- Before you perform operations that may cause risks, such as modifying instance configurations or data, we recommend that you check the disaster recovery and fault tolerance capabilities of the instances to ensure data security.
- You can modify the configurations and data of instances including but not limited to Elastic Compute Service (ECS) and Relational Database Service (RDS) instances. Before the modification, we recommend that you create snapshots or enable RDS log backup.
- If you have authorized or submitted sensitive information such as the logon account and password in the Alibaba Cloud Management Console, we recommend that you modify such information in a timely manner.
After your apsaradb for RDS instance expires, you can only renew it first. For more information, see manual renewal. After the instance is renewed and unlocked, the configuration of the instance is changed. For more information about the operations and rules for changing the configuration, see change configuration.
