I'm gearing up to upgrade us to v7, but want to test things out before I do anything I can't undo on my server. I installed CrushFTP7 on another machine and copied over the prefs.xml, users and other files per this page
When I try to start the Temporary Server, nothing seems to start. I tracked down and changed settings in prefs.xml that refer to the address and path to folders/certificates. The logs have several of these messages:
CrushFTP Version 7.2.0 will not work with a CrushFTP 6 license.
but I can't see where to clear the license out so it's running without a license as a trial while I tinker. Or is this not possible and I can only run as a trial starting from scratch with no users or prefs imported?
If you want to use the CrushFTP 7 trial you need to use it without your prefs.xml, as your prefs contains details of your registered license.
If you think, you can email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can provide you a temporary license for testing purposes.
Let us know.
You can also edit your prefs.xml file and remove the three lines containing "registration" to get the v6 info.
However I am not sure this is the real issue either.
When you click start temp server...what exactly does it do? Does it say the ports started?
What happens if you use chrome for example to try and connect to a port?
