Creating a backup Confluence server from production EC2 snapshot? Edited

I've recently inherited Admin responsibilities for managing our Confluence server (version 6.0.3).  It is currently out of date, so I would like to build a recovery/test server prior to upgrading.

We currently host our instance of Confluence on a Linux EC2 instance with daily snapshots and the database stored with RDS.  The instance is behind a load balancer as well.

My AWS knowledge is limited (but growing fast) - but, has anyone performed something like this before?  Is there a best practice for the order of operation in which you do things?

i.e. create a new volume from the snapshot > attach the volume to the new instance >etc

Then, is there anything that needs to be changed manually within the instance?

Thanks for any help you can give!
