    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. Commented Feb 17, 2019 at 21:08

  • In IIS you can recycle the Application Pool for the given website. Commented Feb 17, 2019 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
