How does the software licensing work?

APG vNext license is per-instance. What it means is one APG vNext license gives you the right to install the software on one web server serving one base URL
 
In our case, the software powers http://www.aspplayground.net/community/ on one web server.
 
Your database server can be located on a different machine from the web server.

We have a Licensing Management Interface included in the software that lets you move your software to another machine or URL.

Hello, I was wondering if it's possible to have a second licensed copy of forum software installed on the same machine with a different URL, and have it work with the same forum database as the first. 
So as to have two separate domains working with one forum simultaneously, double links to everything (from each of the URLs), etc.

Hi Lenny,
 
No, it's not possible to do that. The software uses a single base URL for licensing and other operations (URL is stored in db), so it'll have unpredictable behaviors if you connect 2 forum software to the same db.

Why can't I deactivate an instance and move it to a new machine if I don't have current support. You say that a licence is perpetual and don't memtion you need a current subscription to move the software?
