Why am I getting a cPanel license error?

Art. Nr: 148  |  Rating: 4/5 from 940 votes  |  Last Updated: Wed, May 16, 2012

If you are currently getting a cPanel license error, this generally means that your cPanel has got out of sync with the cPanel licensing server. To resolve this issue, please follow the step-by-step directions outlined below:

  • Login to your cPanel server via SSH
  • Next, run the following Linux command:

    # /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

  • Wait a moment for the action to complete!

Once the action has completed, you should be able to resume working with your cPanel web hosting account as normal.

Should you have any further questions pertaining to your cPanel license, please feel free to get in contact with our web hosting support team for additional assistance.

cPanel is installing now firewall by default so you go tto check this in /etc/sysconfig/iptables

You may check if this is not a problem with DNS resolving / resolvers on the Linux server.

Be sure you have Internet connection and /etc/resolv.conf is working fine and resolving cPanel update servers.

After migration of the VPS or server this happen a lot. May be changing of the IP address causing this cPanel error.

Be sure the exact port is opened on the server. cPanel‘s licensing servers are working through port 2089.
