    Can you setup Sunshop in a different subdirectory on the same domain as live store?

    I am looking to design a new look for the website, but I do not wish to tamper with my live site. Is it safe to create a subdirectory on the live site and install Sunshop again with a completely new database (located on the same server as the live/production site?)

    Will this work? Any caveats? Is this safe? I don't have a local server to test this new theme design on and I definitely don't want to impact the production environment while I work on the theme. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Yes you can and there should not be any issues at all. As far as licensing goes, as long as it is for development purposes, you do not need a new licenses.

    Just make sure you make a copy of everything including the database to avoid any issues.
