ISPmanager trial cannot be activated. Why?

According to ISPsystem rules a trial license can be activated only once on a certain IP address. If you activate the license for the first time, but there is no the “Get a trial version” option, it means that a previous owner of the server (another client of your hosting provider) has already activated ISPmanager trail.

To have the license activated, contact our Customer care department. Our managers will reset the activation history on that IP address. Once completed, perform the following steps:

  1. Delete the license file from the server:rm /usr/local/mgr5/etc/ispmgr.lic;
  2. Download the file again: /usr/local/mgr5/sbin/licctl fetch ispmgr;
  3. Open the panel on https://<server ip address>:1500/ispmgr, where ispmgr is a short name of the control panel;
  4. Activate the license as described in “How to activate a trial version”
