I'd like a bit of advice on the best way to proceed here. I have several sites, some PHPBB, some vB 3.8x that I want to pull over to Xenforo one at a time. Some huge, some tiny...
What I'd like to do is build a single site somewhere to use as a sandbox to develop the theme, layout, and everything else for one site, export the theme and files, then build the new site on the actual domain, then wipe the sandbox and start on the next one.
- Build sandbox, develop site #1
- Move sandbox to live, licensed install site #1 on real domain
- Wipe sandbox, start on site #2
- Move sandbox to live, licensed install site #2 (go to 1)
I'm guessing I'll need to buy one license for the sandbox site, then buy an additional license each time I want to build a new site? Obviously each site needs a legal license, and I'm not trying to find a way around that in ANY WAY. What I'm hoping however is to find a way to build a sandbox to develop various sites (and modules, and themes) -- one at a time -- without having to spend an extra $140 that I really don't have right now.
Any ideas or constructive input would be appreciated.
