Altova MapForce Server 2022 Advanced Edition

This topic describes how to start Altova LicenseServer (LicenseServer for short) and MapForce Server. You must have administrator (root) privileges to be able to start these programs, so you should run these commands as the root user. If you are logged in as root, you can leave out the sudo keyword from the commands listed below.


Start LicenseServer

To correctly register and license MapForce Server with LicenseServer, LicenseServer must be running as a daemon on the network. Start LicenseServer as a daemon with the following command:


[< Debian 8]

sudo /etc/init.d/licenseserver start  

[≥ Debian 8]

sudo systemctl start licenseserver

[< CentOS 7]

sudo initctl start licenseserver

[≥ CentOS 7]

sudo systemctl start licenseserver

[< Ubuntu 15]

sudo initctl start licenseserver

[≥ Ubuntu 15]

sudo systemctl start licenseserver


sudo initctl start licenseserver  


If at any time you need to stop LicenseServer, replace start with stop in the above commands. For example:

sudo systemctl stop licenseserver
