  • Licensing Question

    I want to know if the license allows me to have a vBulletin installation running on my web server which is where the members will be posting AND have an installation on my home PC only for testing new skins/mods. The installation on the home PC is compeltely closed off to the public, only for my testing. Does the vBulletin license allow that?

    I think you are allowed to have one installation for testing only

      You can have one test installation on your server

      It has to be Password Protected and not accessible to the public

      It also has to be in the /testvb/ directory

      On your home machine ? I guess if it complies with the above you'd be ok.

      From the License Agreement found here

      If you have a valid licence, you may set up an additional test forum in order to test code, template and database modifications. To make this clear to us and our licence verification procedures, place it in a directory called 'testvb' and be sure to password protect it. It must not be accessible by the general public.

        You are pemitted to have a test board on your home machine. Many of use do that as it allows us to torture the thing without worrying about hosing the server!
