activation

I'm getting this Error:
ERROR: PowerCMS was unable to activate for some reason. Ensure that all PowerCMS files are uploaded to your server correctly and try again. If this problem persists, visit WebAssist Support for assistance.

I have uploaded the unzipped files to pcms2 and ran the install
the server checks were all ok

I have I think 6 copies powercms 2
Only 3 serial numbers show. I purchase two just recentl under you special. No matter witch of the three serial numbers I use I get the same error.

What I.m I doing wrong?

Thanks
Larry

There could be an issue on the server that is not allowing for the cURL connection to the webassist.com servers to perform the activation.

Create a blank php page with the following code on it:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
$c curl_init();
curl_setopt($cCURLOPT_URL"https://www.webassist.com/");
curl_setopt($cCURLOPT_TIMEOUT90);
curl_setopt($cCURLOPT_POST1);
curl_setopt($cCURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER0);
curl_setopt($cCURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER1);
curl_setopt($cCURLOPT_POSTFIELDS"");
$result curl_exec($c);

if(!
curl_errno($c)){
  
$info curl_getinfo($c);
  echo 
'Took ' $info['total_time'] . ' seconds to send a request to ' $info['url'];
} else {
  echo 
'Curl error: ' curl_error($c);

?>

upload that to the server and test it, then post back the results.

you were correct:
Curl error: Failed to connect to 184.73.197.85: Permission denied >

My server has an "Outgoing Connections Manager" to protect against unauthorixed access.

I checked the ip in the broswer and it went to webassist.com
I allowed the above ip in the Outgoing Connections Manager and ran it again.
I got a different ip address error.
I repeated the process and I allowed it.
Next I got message was a connection.

When I ran Power CMS
It now accepted the activation number.

Thanks
Larry
