“any attached Amazon RDS DB instance will be deleted”. This boldfaced warning is presented when you sometimes need to resort to last measures to get an EB instance back on its feet. Lest you panic, you can easily see if your EB instance is managing any RDS instances by looking at the Database section of the configuration. It may well be you don’t have any databases at all — but they present this error message regardless of whether you do or do not have any.
