Getting help

Next to this documentation, the License Server also integrates basic help functionality. To access this, use the help command:

licenseServer --help

The License Server responds by printing all supported commands, look for a section similar to:

Commands:
  licenseServer --command [options]

  -h  --help        show help
      --version     show version information
      --activate    activate license
  -k  --keycode     request activation code
      --deactivate  deactivate license
      --server      launch as a server
      --status      show server status
      --install     install cartridge
      --cartridge   request cartridge installation code

Getting help for a specific command

For each command, you can use the short or long version. You can also get more explanation for a specific command, by adding its name to the help command, as in:

licenseServer --help keycode

Replace "keycode" with the name of the command you want further information about. Another example and an important one, the --status command. It retrieves information about the status of a specific license server. It can also be used locally or remotely. If used local the --cachefolder option must be used with the same value as during installation. Otherwise the IP address and the password must be provided for the running server.

$ ./licenseServer --status --cachefolder=./1/
