2 Websites?

Are we allowed to have like..

I use http://cheatchat.org for my vBulletin, but can I only use the same licensed vBulletin on another site, to test mods, and stuff like that?

In my opinion, the best way to test mods is to install vBulletin on your local machine.

If you can't do that, and it needs to be on a live server, you will need to have it password protected according to the vBulletin license agreement.

I don't want to do that, I want to be able to show my testings to other administrators/friends.

I think it should be fine to make a test forum for installing hacks and to show it to your buddies and staff before implementing on your actual board.

You should send a ticket and see if it's alright with Jelsoft.

I already told you...

You CAN have a "test" forum up and running, but it needs to be password protected. If you want to show it to other admins / friends, then you will need to purchase a second license. This is in the vBulletin license agreement.

Well I assume once you keep it behind closed doors (password protected) to show his friends for beta testing purposes and so on, its ok.

I asked this once on vb.com. I had a copy of my site running on an .htaccess protected subdomain, and they told me that I was violating the license agreement.

Not adding insult to injury here... just what the contract states...

If you have a valid Software license, you may set up an additional test forum in order to test code, template and database modifications. To make this clear to us and our license verification procedures, place it in a directory called 'testvb' and be sure to password protect it. It must not be accessible by the general public.
@Winterworks - Are you using this for Mod developmental purposes?

You are allowed to give out limited access to other admins/friends of your board for testing purposes.
