  • delete the file /etc/liveconfig/liveconfig.key
  • execute liveconfig --activate and enter the new license code
  • restart liveconfig: /etc/init.d/liveconfig restart


Webseite returns an »Internal Server Error«
This message means that an error occured while processing a request before running PHP or things like that. To get a more detailed error message, enable the webserver error log (in LiveConfig at Hosting / Webspace / Error Log). After 1-2 minutes reload the affected website and then check the error log for new messages. This log (error.log) can be viewed live within LiveConfig.

Common causes are:

  • .htaccess file with restricted “Options” command (eg. “Options FollowSymLinks”). Comment this out, or replace “FollowSymLinks” with “SymLinksIfOwnerMatch”.
