Revoke a FOP2 License to install it on a different server

In order to move a license from a server to another, you must revoke the license on the current working server. In order to revoke you must know your original activation code, so be sure to have it handy before attempting this procedure. Also, revoking only works if your license is active, valid and working. You cannot revoke invalidated licenses.

Also, if you want to upgrade FOP2 versions, then DO NOT revoke.

Please DO NOT REVOKE if you want to upgrade FOP2 versions.

To know if your license is good to be revoked, first run

/usr/local/fop2/fop2_server --test

If it returns that the license is Ok, then you can go ahead and revoke it with the command:

/usr/local/fop2/fop2_server --revoke

You will be prompted for your activation code. Type it and hit ENTER, if everything is ok it will say that the license was revoked. At this point your activation code is now released and can be used to activate another installation/server.

Be sure to activate the same FOP2 version you had installed before to avoid issues, because version upgrades are available for one year upon purchase. Attempting a version upgrade by doing a revoke/register is not advisable and it will fail.

If you do not have access to the original sever you must request a manual revocation to us. You can request manual revocations 3 times. After that you will need to purchase a new license. So always try to manage the revocation yourself.
