  • Yet another license question. 2 licenses, swapping urls for them

    I have license1 and license2 each pointing to different sites, site1 and site2.
    License1 has been upgraded to v4 suite, license2 has not.
    Is there any problem with switching the urls for a few months?

    License1 -> site2
    License2 -> site1

    Then a few months later switch back to License1 -> site1, License2 -> site2.

    We anticipate using the blogs & articles extensively and it will take months for those to be written with the feedback from users integrated. So the Suite will effectively have the forums disabled, or at least trimmed down to the 1 main default forum.

    So the main site (site1) will continue to use v3.8 while the v4 suite site (site2) is used mainly for debugging the articles/blogs. Then later copy/paste those by hand into the integrated suite at the main site (site1).

    I apologize for bothering the hard working vb.com support staff in advance. If this is ok to do, I will keep my v3.8 license2 instead of trying to sell it this week.

    Logistically it wouldn't cause any issues.

      Thank you very much for your time.

      I take that to mean I could update the urls on the licenses in my members area and need not bother anyone at vb.com. And I assume pirate reports will not have an issue either.

        That's correct as long as you have a valid license for each install.

          Thanks Steve,
          Yes 2 completely separate, valid licenses, exactly as described in post #1. I understand that you have had many questions in regard to people thinking they have 2 licenses after they upgrade to suite v4, I had both of these long before the pre-sale started.

            Depending on what you mean by this, I would be very careful.

              In no way am I intending to play any games with the licenses. I have 2 licenses and 2 sites long before the presale started. Site1 is doing well, site2 is a dismal failure so I was going to shut it down.

              I was thinking about selling the site2 license this week while the presale was going on, but if I can do the swapping of urls and utilize that 2nd license for a few months, while we develop the articles/blogs acurately prior to integrating into the main site, I'll keep that 2nd license.

              I meant nothing nefarious. If any of the staff had concerns they could look up my licenses.
