Hi there,

Do you get any errors when you try to add the license?

What I would usually do is to create a new cPanel Droplet with this 1-Click installation here:

Then you can follow the prompt once you log in to WHM where you would be able to specify your existing license.

Let me know how it goes. Best, Bobby

Hello, @eslamosama

  • Go to URL in the web browser.

  • Enter your Server IP in the text box and press Verify License button.

If you have a valid license on the IP then you can run the following command via ssh:

  1. /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

You now should be able to log in to WHM/cPanel.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
