The product license fails to update. The following errors may occur:
PLESK_ERROR: Licensing Server Unreachable: Unable to connect with licensing server.
Please make sure that your network allows communication to ka.plesk.com:5224.
For more details check system help pages.
PLESK_ERROR: Couldn't resolve host name
PLESK_ERROR: Can't connect to ka.plesk.com:5224 (Timeout)
PLESK_ERROR: Could not update the license. Make sure that connections to the license server
ka.plesk.comon TCP port 5224/443 are not blocked. See how to do so.
curl ka.plesk.com:443command fails with one of the following errors in
# cURL cannot communicate with license server https://id-X2.kaid.plesk.com:443/ (): Couldn't resolve host name(6)
# cURL cannot communicate with license server https://id-X2.kaid.plesk.com:443/ (184.108.40.206): Timeout was reached(28)
# cURL cannot communicate with license server https://id-X2.kaid.plesk.com:443/ (220.127.116.11): Couldn't connect to server(7)
Plesk tries to connect to the license server ka.plesk.com on TCP ports 5224 or 443 to update the license, but cannot establish a connection.
Since February 5, 2018,
ka.plesk.com hostname will be resolved into 3 different IP addresses based on round-robin logic:
CONFIG_TEXT: 18.104.22.168 (old one)
Additionally, since the same date, the Key Administrator will accept connections from Plesk on two ports :
CONFIG_TEXT: 5224 (an old one, non-standard port)
443 (new, default HTTPS port)
Check whether ka.plesk.com resolves to one of the proper IP addresses:
# nslookup ka.plesk.com
If not, check that the
/etc/hostsfile (for Linux) or
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hostsfile has no records with
Specify one of the IP addresses for
CONFIG_TEXT: 22.214.171.124 ka.plesk.com
Use the following command to check the connectivity:
# telnet ka.plesk.com 443
In case a connection is successful, the output is as follows:
# telnet ka.plesk.com 443
Connected to ka.plesk.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
Note: Telnet client should be installed additionally for Windows.
ka.plesk.comresolves to the right IP address, but the connection still fails, check whether outgoing connections are blocked by firewall.
Check the DNS resolver configuration.
As a temporary workaround, upload a file with the license to the server and install it from a command line (command is applicable for both Windows and Linux):
# plesk bin license -i path_to_license_file
I case you only have an activation code the temporary workaround is not possible. Without a license key it is not possible to get support from plesk. So we bought a license and are not able to activate plesk nor to get support.
Hello Nils Fett
You may try contacting our Licensing Support here to know your license number and obtain the license as a file.
Блин, как связаться с поддержкой, срочно нужно попасть на сервер, код активации выдает, в чат не пускает так как нет лицензии, мрак какой то, есть какой то экстренный вид связи ???
