How to install a Plesk license?
To install a Plesk license, use your activation code - a combination of numbers and letters XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX.
Log in to Plesk.
Go to Tools & Settings > License Information (License Management in previous Plesk versions) > click Install Key.
Note: To install an additional purchased license, click the Retrieve Keys button. If the purchased license was not retrieved, switch to the Additional License Keys tab and click the Install key button to install it manually.
Enter your Plesk activation code and click OK.
Installing a Plesk license using a license key file
By default, license file upload is disabled in Plesk Onyx 17.8 and later versions. If you need the ability to install Plesk license keys and additional license keys by uploading a license key file, see this documentation page to enable it.
Once Plesk license file upload is activated:
Go to Tools & Settings > License Information (or License Management) > click Install Key.
Choose Upload a license key file.
Click Browse... and specify the path to a .zip key file. Click OK.
Installing a Plesk license via a command-line interface
Connect to a Plesk server via SSH (Linux) / RDP (Windows Server).
Use the command below (on Windows Server, start a command prompt as an administrator):
To install a license using an activation code
MYSQL_LIN: plesk bin license --install XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX
To install a license using a license key file
MYSQL_LIN: plesk bin license --install /path/to/PLSK.XXXXXXXX.XXXX.xml
