we are currently moving an application developed in Adobe Coldfusion 8 from one Linux server machine to another and we would like to know how to migrate the relevant Coldfusion 8.0 license. The IT specialist has already tried to install the same license on the new Linux server machine. When the serial is applied to the new server, it turns the server to the “Developer” modality which is not the expected modality for our need.

Have they done that by copying the CF license from the CF Admin’s “system info” page on the old (working) server to the new one (also adding it on its “system info” page)? I just ask because you could be getting the key from somewhere else (may not be the right one) or may be trying to put it into the new server by editing a file (which they may get wrong). The above is the way to do it.

That said, later releases of CF, I think from CF10, no longer let you view the key from the Admin, but it can be found in the lib\license.properties file. And if perhaps the person was trying to do it by putting the SN into that file, note that you would need to restart CF.

Finally, you may want to look in the cfserver.log to see if there is more info on the problem offered during the startup. (Windows users in the same situation would want to look instead in the coldfusion-out.log, which in CF8 would be the coldfusion8\runtime\logs, not coldfusion8\logs folder, or in jrun4\logs).

Let us know how it goes.
