Can't Upgrade Due to Issue with IPS License Server

Recommended Posts


I've been getting the following error for hours when trying to use my recently renewed license key.


There was an error communicating with the IPS License Server: Connection timed out. Please try again later or contact IPS technical support for assistance.

I'm in the process of upgrading from IPB 3.4.8 to (using the latter as a bridge to the current version).  I upgraded successfully several hours ago, but had to roll back for an unrelated mistake I made. My other expired board / license is having the same issue.

Is the server down, or was my account flagged for repeated license changes?

  • PHP Version 5.6.40
  • cURL enabled 7.29.0

Can’t use PHP 5.6 with latest release of version 4. PHP 8.0 or 8.1 required. Would also recommend a direct upgrade to latest as there could be bugs in the upgrader in 4.1  

No license issues currently so might be a temporary connection issue or something on your hosting side possibly.
