Phpstorm License Server: Best Practices and Troubleshooting Tips



How to Manage Your Phpstorm License with Phpstorm License Server




Phpstorm is one of the most popular IDEs for PHP development, offering a rich set of features and tools to help you code faster and easier. But how do you activate and use your Phpstorm license on multiple machines?




Phpstorm License Server



One solution is to use Phpstorm License Server, a service that lets you distribute and manage your JetBrains product licenses within your company network. With Phpstorm License Server, you can assign licenses based on a per-machine licensing model, meaning that each machine that runs Phpstorm needs a license.


In this article, we will show you what Phpstorm License Server is, how to get it, how to install and configure it, and how to register and activate your Phpstorm license using it.


What is Phpstorm License Server?




Phpstorm License Server (FLS) is a Java-based application that enables you to manage your JetBrains product licenses within your company network. FLS supports all JetBrains Toolbox and Plugins subscription licenses, but not Team Tools.


FLS is available if you own more than 50 active product subscriptions. This limit does not apply to classroom licenses, which can use FLS with any number of licenses.


FLS works by assigning licenses based on a per-machine licensing model. This means that if a single user runs multiple IDEs concurrently on different machines, they need a license for each machine. However, if a user runs only one IDE at a time on different machines, they only need one license.


FLS also allows you to monitor the usage of your licenses and revoke them if needed. You can access FLS from any device with an internet connection using a web browser.


How to Get Phpstorm License Server?




To start using FLS for your JetBrains products, you need to contact the Sales team to enable FLS for your JetBrains Account. You also need to have a valid license for Phpstorm or any other JetBrains product that you want to use with FLS.


Once you have FLS enabled for your account, you can download the latest version of FLS from the Release notes page. You can choose between different distributions of FLS depending on your operating system and preferences.


You can also try License Vault, a new cloud service for license distribution hosted by JetBrains. License Vault does not require installation and
