What steps do I need to take to upgrade the instance? I cannot find the database in the rds. How can I take the backup to upgrade the instance?

@Anum I don't know your setup, but it looks like you are just using a simple JAR, so you'll have to figure out what environment variable you have used to start the JAR with, so you can find the application database.
Contact the person who setup Metabase. And follow everything in the link I provided.
