For a client I'm building a website on another hosting. Since the original website is build on a alternative system and therefore can not be transferred or copied, I'm building the new website without the transfer of the domain so the old website is still running. I can access the new one by using the host file in my local windows machine and pointing the url to the new website. Therefore is only by me accessible via the original url.

Now I have a problem with registering the plugins.

By the way, I'm using the license keys from a demo website witch I don't need anymore.

How can I get rid of this issue?

    Hi Peter, 

    Thanks for reaching out. 

    To transfer the licenses, you need to go to the old site first, then in "Bookly > Settings > Purchase Code" click the "Click here" https://prnt.sc/sr0vpu button to disassociate the purchase code. And go to the new site and in "Bookly > Settings > Purchase Code" associate the purchase code. 

    However, if you need to make tests locally or over your LAN and have access to the plugin you will need to set a website with the same URL as the live website. These websites need to have the same domain name. After that, you need to set up the host's file on the computer, so it will behave this way: when you can access this website on your computer, you will actually access the local version and not the live website.

    To set up the hosts file you will need to open this file and add this text, there: your-live-site-name.com
    For other LAN computers:
    LAN_IP_website_addr your-live-site-name.com.

    If the domain is correct then the site will be activated correctly. I think that the purchase code is mandatory even on the local site. 

    Please reply to my email with Ticket #146138 if further assistance is needed regarding this issue. 

    Many thanks!
