I have launched my website recently, but would like to keep developing themes on a second IPB installation. However, I only have one MySQL database I can use. Is it possible to install a second IPB package in the same MySQL db as I am using for my live site?
Yes, that’s what the prefixes are for. So technically, that is no problem. You could install dozens of different apps in one MySQL database.
It’s still good practice not to do it …
Thanks @Ralf Herrmann! Would it be better to just install a new theme on my existing IPB setup? I am planning on adding database templates and don't want anything to mess up my current installation.
I just tried to install a second IPB package on my server, but I can only use my license once. Is it not possible to install a second package for testing purposes?
You need to add -TESTINSTALL to the license key. Note that this is really only for testing purposes. That second installation cannot be public.
Cheers Ralf. I've installed MAMP on my Mac and will use that environment for testing. That works the same right?
