  • a question about Multiple domains

    I read that post on this forum:

    Your forum is accessable from multiple domains and your forums are configured to show/hide certain forums based on the domain. This is not OK and requires an active vBulletin license for each domain. In this situation the forums appear to have separate content thereby making them separate forums in the eyes of the license agreement. Your forum content needs to be the same for each domain in order to qualify as a single forum.
    I would like to ask if I dont upload software twice with one license. But I write myself an add-on (or custom script) then is it allowed?

    As per the license agreement, you cannot write an addon to circumvent the License Agreement.

        2 licenses = 2 installations/instances so yes

          If you have two independent licenses, there's no reason why you can't use the same dataset. That means you own the 3.x license, and you buy a full new 4.x license...NOT the upgrade. But realize that support for 3.x will die when your license expires in the next year.

            you can have a splash page in a different directory with an unlimited number of domains pointing to it and have a link on the splash page pointing to the forum. I use a picture with "click picture to enter site"

                My bad... I wasn't thinking clearly... You are correct and sharing a database between the versions would most likely not work.

                    I will be happy when a vBb staff to answer my question above.
                    I have one small forum, now I want to seperate to two content for each domain.

                    The price for each license is too high for me (for small forum).
                    I own one expired license (version 3.8.2)and will have to buy the second to seperate.
                    And know if it will work or not!
                    Thanks

                      Yes - that IS possible, but ONLY if you are running the 3.8.2 version, as you cannot run an instance of 4.0 on an expired 3.8 license. If you want to run the 4.x software or the latest version, you will have to have 2 active licenses.
