First you need to request the license. To do it open the ALPFrame
viewer and go to Request/apply license page.
There are two links on the page. The first leads you to the page
that will generate a license request. And the second will import the
You need to do the following:
- Go to the first page and generate a license request file.
Enter the e-mail address used in your order and the password
we've sent to you. Attach the generated file to a mail message
and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will respond to your request with the updated license file
(with the same name).
- The response will include an attachment with the same file
name which will contain the generated license. You need to go to
the other page (import a license file) and import it.
If you have more licenses and more machines to care for - you can
attach all the license request files in one single message. There is
no need to set any subject or text in the message body - the
messages are processed automatically.
Developer licenses are intended for developers and software
distributors who want to distribute their own products with ALP.
Thus the developers need to pay only once and then distribute their
ALP based applications without requiring the end-user to pay for ALP
license or even know that ALP backs up their applications. There are
many deployment techniques, but developer licenses are applied in
one single manner:
You will receive a license data and a sample alp.site file
containing your license. You will need to put the license data (or
the sample alp.site file) in each ALP virtual site. The ALP
applications are separated completely by the alp.site files - these
files define the borders of the virtual site and ASP applications.
So the ALP application is all the files and directories under the
directory containing the alp.site file. Therefore the license
travels always with the application and no matter how the deployment
is done - using installation or on autorun CD the license will be
used with your application.
In most cases the sample alp.site file will be enough and you can
just put it into the root directory of each application you are
going to distribute/use. In some rare cases you may need to specify
additional options in the alp.site file - not related to the
licensing - such as custom plug-ins and so on. In such situation you
need to include the CERTIFICATION section containing your license as
subsection of the SITE section of the alp.site file. If you have
questions - please ask.
