    Hi Guys,

    So we're planning on moving our dedicated server from a hosting company to AWS.
    What we did was install cPanel/WHM into a CentOS instance last Friday which went well.
    We did a couple of changes such as adding 2 more EIPs (aside from the first EIP used during installtion of cPanel/WHM) because some domains need SSL.
    Today, we tried accessing the WHM but after logging in, we are shown with the Invalid License File error page. I tried verifying the first public IP (EIP) at verify.cpanel.net and it says license is active with 15-DAY-TEST under package. Can someone help us figure out what's wrong with this? probably some config change?

    I was able to make it work again by running `/usr/local/cpanel/bin/set_hostname newhostname`. It appears that the hostname returned to it's original after the EC2 was rebooted.
