It looks like the error may be as simple as the fact that you are not specifying the port for your Elasticsearch node. It appears that port 80 is being used by Kibana on that server, so you probably want to send:

curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/_license' -d @mylic.json

Note the :9200 in there. 9200 is the default HTTP port for Elasticsearch; if you changed it, as Kibana was changed, then simply fill in the appropriate number there.

Hope that helps,


Okey! thank you!
update successful!
