    I installed WHM and this new VPS I just got the problem is everytime I reboot the VPS the WHM license fails once it come back on line. I must SSH and reset the hostname and then reset the WHM license /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt everytime.

    So why and how can I fix this?

    Hello,

    Ultimately it sounds like at least part of the issue is that the hostname is being reset to the container name of the VPS everytime it reboots. To resolve this you need to access the host node and rename the container if you don't have access to this you'll need to have your hosting provider do this for you and set it to the server's hostname. Once this is done can you let us know if the issue persists on reboot?


    Thank you,
