    I got a license invalid error and was advised to run /scripts/upcp --force via SSH as root but getting the following error: Failed to write upcp pid file: Read-only file system at /scripts/upcp line 97.

    Any ideas on what I need to do in order to resolve this?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    You need to reboot your server to overcome this issue.

    Don't you think I would have tried that? :P

    No there seems to be a permission error with the license file. I tried to force update cPanel but now the server is gone down completely.

    Hello,

    If you are getting cPanel license error then the license file can be updated by running /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt as root via SSH. You can verify your IP for correct license at

    That would not assist the issue of the permissions being incorrect.

    I recommend letting our technical analysts assist regarding this issue if you haven't done so already.
