    I have two forums on my site. Do I have to purchase two licenses or can I use just the one for both

    Depends. If you use separate domains, you need 2 licences.

      Yes, that is correct. For every site you have, you must have one vBUlletin license for each.

      2 sites = 2 licenses.

        Its all under the same domain name. Does it cause problems in the database if I have 2, or would it be ok if I have two seperate data bases. Can you tell Im not very techy..lol!

          If you run two forums under one licence (Like www.relic.com does with its games) you could get away with a single licence, but if you need two separate boards (ie. www.site1.com and www.site2.com) or a separate userbase for the forums, you would need separate licences. Using just one would mean that the entire userbase could access all the public contents running under that one domain.

            You can have the information for both forums in the same database, using table prefixes.

                made me assume that this was a purely technical question after the license question had been resolved

                  Don't assume in Pre-Sales, it leads to confusion. Much better to spell things out so much so that the person asking actually yawns.

                    If you are going to have 2 sperate installations of the forum, you would need to have 2 licenses. Each license is only good for one installation of the software.
