Test Installation


Well-known member
I decided to make and release styles for xenforo but I don't want to test styles on my own site. I would like to create a test installation. How do I go about doing that?

We can't have more than one installation of xenforo running on the same domain unless a license is bought for each one right? Not sure how people who create styles do it.
you can install more than once with the same license for test purpose only, thats what Ashley said... I guess you have to buy another license? Not sure though...

If you want to have two publicly accessible installations then you need two licenses.

A test installation is only for you and your site staff and cannot be publicly accessible.

You may create a single additional test installation for the purpose of testing the Software. Any test installation of this kind must be password protected, and access to it must be limited to You and Your website staff.
