How to Transfer Your License to a New Server

When moving to another server, please do the following:

Copy the serial.no file content as you will need them for the new server.

Run the command:

./lshttpd -m


This command will talk to the Litespeed license server and unlock your serial number, it will generate a 3-day temp license so you don't get any downtime.

nano serial.no

Then paste in the content from the old one. Save it.


Run the Installer:

./install.sh.

If you wish to copy your old installation directory over to the new hardware, then you just need to activate your license.


To retrieve a new license key, run:

./lshttpd -r
