Auto PHP Licenser 1.6 automates license uninstallation requests, allowing your clients to uninstall their own licenses inside protected scripts.
If you follow phpmillion or read this blog, you know we update our tools with new exciting features every few weeks. It has been almost 3 weeks since the last update, and it’s time for new one. Today, we introduce Auto PHP Licenser 1.6, which brings several changes and improvements. The most important are these:
aplUninstallLicense function for user to uninstall his own license inside protected script;
Option to uninstall your own license via administration dashboard;
Many authors (especially those selling on Envato) require a separate license for each new installation. Our PHP license manager supports this feature, so developers can limit the number of installations for every license. In other words, if the limit of installations is set to 1 in Auto PHP Licenser, and client installs protected script on domain1.com, further installations will be blocked. Just as you would expect from a sophisticated PHP license management software.
But what happens if user wants to remove protected script from domain1.com and install it on domain2.com? He simply needs to contact software author (you) and ask to “release” his old license. Then author deletes old installation from his licensing database, and client is able to perform a new installation on domain2.com using the same license. Needless to say, an old installation at domain1.com stops working immediately. But what would you say if we made it possible with single click of a mouse?
Clients can uninstall their own licenses without contacting software author now.
Some of our clients have over 5.000 active installations in their Auto PHP Licenser databases, and we decided automated uninstallation requests are mandatory to them. As a result, we added a new aplUninstallLicense function, which automatically “releases” an existing license. Once new function is called inside protected script, current installation stops working and client can install script on another domain immediately. We also added this feature into Auto PHP Licenser dashboard itself, so our clients can uninstall their own licenses too.
The best of all? The new function doesn’t require any extra parameters. Just call it once without any parameters, and licensing module will do the rest. If you need more details on how it works, check out the updated documentation. Or take a look at updated demo scripts for real-life examples.
…and see you again within next few weeks, Dead Man Switch 1.1 is on the way!
