Changing licensed domain name or IP address in Centova Cast v3
I need to change my licensed domain name or IP address. How do I do this?
To change your licensed domain name:
- Login to your client area at centova.com.
- Click "Manage Product Licenses" and select your Centova Cast license.
- Click the "Re-issue license key" link. (See the section below if you do not see a "Re-issue license key" link.)
This will authorize the reissuance request on our end. Next, you just need to tell Centova Cast to request a new license. Login to your server via SSH and run:
rm -f /usr/local/centovacast/etc/license/license.key /etc/init.d/centovacast restart
The license change will take effect immediately.
I do not see a "Re-issue license key" link
If you have located your Centova Cast license and clicked on it, but you do not see a "Re-issue license key" link, then either:
You have not yet issued this license key, in which case you do not need to re-issue it -- just install Centova Cast normally and it will update your domain name automatically as part of the installation process.
You did not order a re-issuable license. With a non-reissuable license, your licensed domain name cannot be changed (as was prominently explained on the order form when you purchased your license). More information is available here.
Non-reissuable licenses are not locked to a specific IP address, so you don't need to take any special steps to move your license to a new server -- as long as you've moved your domain name to the new server as well, you can just enter your existing license key on your new server and it will work fine.
