How to setup domains on server side for this product?
Before installing the product you should have all your domains/sub-domains pointing to the same directory, and as a result you should be able to access your site under different URLs, e.g. http://my-site-domain.org
and http://my-second-site-domain.org should all open the same site, without redirects or frames.
This is done by setting up Apache Virual Hosts to use the same physical location as their root (or equivalent setup if you are not using Apache web server). For CPanel subdomains follow the instructions in the documentation and have the same Document Root
for all your domains and sub-domains.
Do I need multiple XenForo licenses for this setup?
Yes, you need one XenForo license per domain you are using. Consult XenForo licensing terms for the details. You don't need multiple licenses of XenCentral Multisite System.
Can I have different Admin Panels for each domain?
No, the main idea of this addon is to have one central Admin Panel with one database and manage multiple sites that look different,
but they are actually the same, they use the same user base, addons, etc.
