    I want to run multiple instances of scrapebox or simply make it work a whole lot faster. I am trying to figure out if I need a VPS to accomplish that. Ive seen vids showing it run super fast on a VPS. From what I understand, having a VPS is just like running another computer...Help anyone?

    So, I would not have to buy another copy of scrapebox? Youre saying that the license and everything would be transferred to the vps or am I just overthinking it...lol

    Yes one license is enough to run multiple instances on ONE computer. That means you can either run the instances on the VPS or on your computer, not on both. If you want to use SB on the VPS you have to transfer the licence first, this can take up to 24h afaik ;)

    Wow. I didnt know I could run multiple SB's on my computer without a VPS!
    I opened up 2 SB's by mistake a couple of times and got an error saying I need to close 1 instance to use it. How do I run multiples on my computer w/o a VPS?

    If you have a decent computer and connection you can do the same from your home without buying a vps.

    Just copy the scrapebox folder to another location and run the .exe from each folder.

    So you could have

    Main Scrapebox Folder -
    Scrapebox / Scrapebox2 / Scrapebox3 / Scrapebox4

    All being carbon copies just renamed.

    Results will depend on your setup, can't hurt to try it though before you fork out on a vps can it...

    I think I figured it out. It says I have to create another folder and copy the program into the second folder.
