Problem with version 2.x and upgrading


Active member
We are running 1.x right now (the latest) and we have 2.x ready. However, I need to install this in a sandbox, not on production.

It will run on a subdomain of the same domain the live site runs. Will that pass and allow me to install the upgrade in the sandbox without affecting the live site? the goal is to migrate to 2x once we have everything smooth as to not affect the live site.

I see there's a phone home. does the license lock to the subdomain or just the domain?

There will be no licensing issues when running test/dev installs.

For the avoidance of doubt however:
You may create additional test installations for the purpose of testing the Software. Any test installation of this kind must be password protected, installed at a URL that makes the testing purpose clear, not used for production purposes and access to it must be limited to You and Your website staff.
