I started to use AWS EC2 server t2.micro instance with 750 hours for 12 months on 21.02.2019 and on 14.03.2019 I received this mail:
From 21.02.2019 I started just one instance and keep it running without interruption to this day. That is something around 500 hours, not 654. Even my account on AWS portal after login shows about instance this:
Could you please advise me what to do next, why it happens? All about this topic is written here. But it does not clarify my problem. I saw some similar questions through multiple domains but they told that problem is that someone run multiple instances, not just one... but I can clearly see that I have just one that I still not stopped or interrupted... I do not use any AWS database, but Google Cloud PSQL DB that is close to Frankfurt, where my AWS server is located...
Maybe this will be helpful:
One interesting sentence is this here: "Some of the most common limits are by time, such as hourly or by the minute, or by requests, which are the requests you send to the service, also known as API operations." I do not understand it, maybe stupid question - sorry, but the more GET / POST request on my web occur, the quicker time goes? OR the more terminal SSL session instances I have the more time it consumes?
What's more, I connect with terminal to server 2 times a day for an 4 hours and I have 0 visitors on my web page. I use 2 ports, one for production(where I have runnig permanently thread with my site with nohup & and screen commands) and one for development simultaneously.
I wrote to AWS support, but as far as it is free account for now, the severity is LOW and therefore no respond. I have 3 days left I think and then I have to pay...don't understand why and why they did not reset calculation of hours with first day of March?
And solution found thanks to answer here, 2 instances running, Frankfurt and Ohio:
But after shutting down an Ohio instance, another was created and started without my permission again:
In order to terminate instance permanently, disable auto scaling:
