    [Suite] Is it possible to swap Suite and Forum licenses and installs?

    I have two licenses, one Suite and one Forum. I'd like the site that has just the forum installed to become by Suite site and the site that has the Suite to be just a forum site.

    Can I just swap the license assignments to domain names in the customer area and upload a Forum package over the Suite and vice-versa, or will that break something?

    Swap the domain namesin the members area for the licenses.
    Do database backups of both sites (just a good habit to get into!)
    Turn off the sites.
    Uninstall the Blog and CMS from the Forum site.
    Upload the new file set for each site.
    Run the install/upgrade.php script.
    Turn the sites back on.

    That should do it. As I said, make a database backup prior to doing anything because that way if something goes wrong for some reason, you can easily start again.
