How to Update cPanel License Key on VPS/Dedicated Server

How to Update cPanel License Key on VPS/Dedicated Server

Published on 11 June, 2021 in Tutorials

In this article we will show how to easily update your server’s cPanel License. This is needed in cases when you are switching from a trial cPanel license to a paid one, switching from one license provider to another, or when you are dealing with the renewal of an expired license.

Pre-requisites / What You Need To Have

  1. Root or root-privileged account on server
  2. SSH Access
  3. A valid cPanel license

Step 1. Verify cPanel License

Firstly, you need to check if your VPS/Dedicated Server has a valid cPanel License. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Go to https://verify.cpanel.net/ via your PC Browser
  2. Enter your Server’s IP Address in the corresponding text box and click the “Verify License” button
How to verify your cPanel License

If you have a valid cPanel license (Status Active as shown in the above screenshot) then you can proceed with the following steps in this tutorial.

Step 2. Run the cPanel License Key Update Script

cPanel offers a script which checks the status of the license and updates the server’s license accordingly. To run this script follow the steps below:

  1. Login to your Server as root
    e.g. ssh root@server_ip_address
  2. Execute this command:
    /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

Allow a few seconds and then you should see the following message:

Success! Your cPanel license has been updated on server and you can now login to WHM/cPanel.
