Want to buy a Xenforo license today but...

    I want to buy a Xenforo license today but I have a question that I need a clear answer on before I make the investment.

    I run a forum that was built on a previous license that expired a few months ago, however the administrator who bought that license and installed Xenforo for the forum is no longer with us. Since his license expired and I don't have access to his account that bought the former license, if I buy a license today then can I effectively download the Xenforo update for my forum?

    Basically, my license won't be used to install Xenforo, but it would be used to upgrade a forum that was made on a previous license. Is this completely allowable?

    Thank you.

    Yes, I believe that is fine.

    Thanks for your speedy response. So essentially, when I buy the license I'll have an option to bypass installation and get the upgrade file, right? Which means I can just apply the update as intended and not have to go through the process of installing Xenforo when I don't really need it.

    Yes, there are two different .zip files - the full and upgrade.

    You will be fine to use the upgrade .zip.

    Alright, thank you.

    And just one more question, can I buy the enhanced search feature later or does it have to be purchased with the license?
