XF 1.4 Running a test copy of XF

Hi all,

I've just (finally!) gotten around to buying a xenforo license and i'm looking forward to getting stuck in.

Before I start to use it in earnest I want to get a test copy on to my VPS and do some prep and setup work, this will include ensuring I can import a database etc.

This won't be visible to the general public or anything, but as it's not going to be under the domain that my license is associated with, am I likely to have problems?

Thanks in advance!

You are permitted one production installation and one test installation.

The test installation must be password protected and limited to your site staff only.
Hi. I just bought a license. I'm confused as to how do you want the site password protected? Also, do I need to register the test domain anywhere in my account? Thanks.
