Live Admin - Standalone

Live Admin standalone is the same software we are using to serve hosted based chat service with some modifications. It's now available for download. So you can install it on your own hosting server and use it.

There are two registration licenses for standalone version of Live Admin:
  • Single Site Installation License
    This is the common license you need to register the Live Admin. As titled, this type of license works only for your unique site key and can not activate any other installation of Live Admin. This license is available at the Live Admin License Registration page for a one time fee of $99.90
  • Multi Site Unlimited Installation License
    For those who want to install Live Admin on several web sites or servers this license provides ability for activation of unlimited Live Admin installations. However license will still remain under your name and you are not allowed to rent or share it with any other person or organization in any digital or media form. This license can be purchased from Live Admin License Registration page for a one time fee of $490.90

Here is how the Standalone or Lite version works:

Both licenses come with unlimited update or upgrade to further versions of Live Admin.

There are two types of downloadable packages:
