Messed up Plesk droplet & now asking for license.

I recently broke my Plesk install by restoring an old Database. I was only using Plesk for a moment but deleted the droplet. Now after creating a new droplet and doing the 1-click Plesk it’s asking for a license or activating a trial. How can I go back to using the free version that comes with a Digital Ocean Droplet?

And uh, weird. Now it’s working in SF2 again.

I didn’t open a ticket because I can’t reproduce it now, but there does seem to be an intermittent issue that probably should be looked into.

When I created a droplet in the NYC3 datacenter, it worked. The previous 5 attempts were in the SF2 datacenter. I’ll open a ticket to report this.

I can confirm that the Plesk 18.0 marketplace images install “Web Host Edition” with a 15 day trial rather than “Web Admin Se Edition”. I tried both CentOS and Ubuntu versions

The ‘rebuild droplet’ option rebuilds using Plesk 17.8 and that has the same issue.

Strange, because it was working fine just a couple weeks ago.
