    Would be best to request an extension on your license. Once you receive the license simply copy over the old one an recycle the app pool. – Michael West Feb 17 '19 at 21:08
  • @MichaelWest Can you please elaborate "recycle the app pool" ? – Manjesh Feb 17 '19 at 21:12
  • In IIS you can recycle the Application Pool for the given website. – Michael West Feb 17 '19 at 22:06

Yes, it is possible.

First, you must actually have a new license.

Secondly, make sure you replace the expired license file(s) on your Sitecore instance.

  • If you are using Sitecore 8.x the old file is under ./Data.
  • If you are using Sitecore 9.0.x, then look at:
    • .sc/App_Data
    • .xconnect/App_Data
  • If you are using Sitecore 9.1, then look at:
    • .sc/App_Data
    • .xconnect/App_Data
    • .xconnect/jobs/continous/AutomationEngine/App_Data
    • .xconnect/jobs/continous/IndexWorker/App_Data
    • .xconnect/jobs/continous/ProcessingEngine/App_Data
