Under Unix/Linux, a separate program named -stinit- is used to initialize
Stata. To update the license (for example, after adding additional
users to a network license), the old license file needs to be renamed
and a new one created with -stinit-. This should typically be done
# cd /usr/local/stata9
# mv stata.lic stata.oldlic
