I havea blog on which its taken ages to get the look, plugiins etc that I require etc..

I was looking at Backupbuddy in order to basically clone these settings onto another domain.....and then just alter the content slightly. Assuming I wanted to do this 20 times, which licence do I need? BTW they are all for personal use.

Hi, D -

Are you just wanting to make 20 clones from 1 site? If so, a personal license plan would be fine.

When using BackupBuddy to migrate a site only the site that was backed up, or the site that the plugin is actually installed on, counts as a license use. The site you are moving TO does not count as a license because it doesn't require the plugin to be installed there to migrate. Think of licenses as installations. Each time you install BackupBuddy to a site it counts as a license.

So your Site A is one license. You clone Site A 20 times to 20 different domains. Those 20 domains are not licensed so do not count.

But if you are cloning 20 different sites, and you wanted the plugin to remain on each original site for backup and support then I would get the deveoper plan for unlimited uses.

Also, licenses can be moved. So you have Site A and Site B with BackupBuddy installed. Then you decide that you would like to install the plugin on Site C. You can remove the license from Site A and add it to Site C, keeping within the limits of 2 installations at a time with the personal plan.

Does that make sense?
