Upgrading from the trial version is not very difficult, however if you are not comfortable executing the steps provided below, we offer an installation service which you may purchase from your client area.
Note: It is potentially possible that some of your customizations will be lost when upgrading. To avoid this, it is suggested that you make a backup of your files and database before attempting the upgrade from trial. Refer to our Making and Restoring Backups article for assistance.
You can update the license key by logging into your admin panel and on the home page on the right hand side under Quick Stats, you should click on the "Update License Key".
It should then bring up the following popup allowing you to enter your new license key:
Click on the “Save” button after entering your new license key. This is the easiest method of updating your License Key. The next method for using a MySQL command is for more advanced users who are familiar with working in their database.
If you prefer to update the License Key via a MySQL command, you will need to execute the following SQL query on your database:
UPDATE `engine4_core_settings` SET value='1234-1234-1234-1234' WHERE `name`='core.license.key' LIMIT 1;
Be sure to replace "1234-1234-1234-1234" in the above query with your license key. To execute the query, you will need to use a MySQL database management tool such as phpMyAdmin, which most hosting providers include in their control panel software.
