Is it possible to run two separate installations of PhotoPostPro linked with a single vBulletin userbase? Or would this cause problems?


Also, I read in the license agreement that one license allows for one instance of PhotoPostPro. I assume this means that if I ever wanted to run two separate installations of PhotoPostPro on the same site, I would have to buy another license?

You can run two photopost pros into one vb sure you just use a different table prefix for each install.

Now just like vb our licensing is pretty much the same its one install on one domain meaning you can not install multiple instances with one license. Each license is its own install so in your case you need two licenses.

Great! Makes perfect sense.

I don't want to get burned so I wanted your permission - Since I already have one license, can I use it to just test 2 installations before I buy another license? I'm not sure if it'll work the way I want it to, and even if it does I'm not sure if I'll use it. I really just want to try it out. If I do use for my site, then I will definitely buy the second license. I just have an itching curiosity to see how it all works out and if it'll be useful to me.

edit: also if i would buy a second license would and could it be at a discounted rate?

well it has to be totally locked down from web access to the public really

it will react just like a separate photopost because as long as the table prefix is different its a new photopost ;)

You would have to talk with customer service but I beleive discounts start with purchase of 3 or more licenses at one time.
