Before you upload a new license, ensure that Alfresco is running and that you can access the Admin Console. When you first run Alfresco, it defaults to using a 30-day trial license. You must upload your purchased license to run the Alfresco server before the trial period has expired.
Copy the license file to the directory in which Alfresco is installed.
For example, on Windows, copy the file to the C:\Alfresco directory; on Linux, copy the file to /opt/alfresco-x.x.x.
- Open the Admin Console.
- In the General section, click License.
In the License Management section, choose from where you
want to upload the license file.
There are two options for storing the Alfresco license:
Upload License which allows you to locate a license file anywhere on your system.
Click Upload License.
You can then locate and select the license file from the directory structure.
Select the file, and then click Upload.
The new license will be applied to the repository. This will take precedence over license files on the file system. You might also need to restart the server to enable any features added in the new license.
Apply New License which automatically applies a license file that is stored in the Alfresco install directory.
Click Apply New License.
This applies a new license that is stored on the file system. This option will not apply the license if the server has a license uploaded to the repository.
- Click Upload License.
