# Upgrading to Premium
For self-managed FlowForge installations without a license you can unlock more
features with a premium license. As an admin a license can be uploaded to
FlowForge in the admin panel, under the settings tab. When a license is uploaded
a restart of the
forge app is required.
After the forge application has restarted the Node-RED runtimes need to be updated to leverage these features. As restarting Node-RED might need to be coordinated, FlowForge will not automatically restart all instances.
