You are allowed a test installation, but it must not be available to the public. A public test forum would need a licence.

No one should be trying to upgrade a LIVE forum, thats just asking for trouble. Its a beta, not a stable release.

I downloaded my forum and SQL db, running a local XAMPP server
with a identical copy of my sites, then upgradeing local before doing it live.

That way if a problem will occour, i know about it before i go live..
and by the time its going live, i would have worked around it aswell.

But unfortunally getting alot of problems upgradeing my "identical" backup of backup.
to 4.x and again fresh install is fine, but a hassle matching the db content from 3.8.

But im sure the guys at vb will come up with something fun before the gold release.

I'm running it on my live site but I have always ran betas on my live site since I started using this software 5 years ago. I enjoy the challenge.

I am installing this on 2 sites. However, neither will be live till 4.0 is stable, which if the Jelsoft staff is correct should be before the end of the year. Lets all prey it is that soon.

I figure it's safer not to take the risk really, I took down my internet test site just in case! Everythng we could do on a net test site can be tested on localhost so we don't lose anything, it's up to the individual if they want to take the chance.
If you're referring to what I think you are referring to, that was a thread where a skin designer had been running an illegal second installation to showcase his product.

That's not htaccess protected from the public.

My site is also live, I upgraded from a basic install of 3.84 with mods disabled, it's gone down well with the members as well, even though I had to start from scratch.

You know, I think you are right there, yes, and it would go a long way to explain my confusion at Paul's response. Oh well, localhost is good enough for me.

?

All vBulletin 4.0 Beta questions should be posted at vBulletin.com since they are the ones in charge of the software.

I will be testing this out on a test forum tomorrow. I'll do a clean install and then take it down and then upgrade my forum (still on the test site) to see how things are working out. I am interested in seeing how things look from the back end.

Still amazes me that people run Beta on their live sites. I understand the desire for a challenge, but I don't want to disrupt the flow of traffic my users generate because I decide to try something that isn't stable. Not to mention, there are only a few plug-ins I really need on my site and until they are updated for vB 4.0, no way am I switching over.
