Hi,

I sometimes have the need to test scripts in a safe environment on a disposable VM. However out of the box WHM / Cpanel will not do anything until you have activated a license. This means that I have to be able to route traffic from the internet though the NAT of my router then through the NAT of the hypervisor before I can start testing, then I have to hope that the IP has changed as if I have a trial on that IP before I cannot activate another trial, even though the box will not live for more than a few hours, before it is deleted.

Is there a better solution? maybe an installer that comes with some grace period out of the box? Does anybody have a workaround?

Cheers.

Hello,

Please feel free to direct license-related questions to our Customer Service department:

They can review the issue and determine if you are eligible for a developers license.

Thank you.
