x2 installations of FileVista on 1 server?

Is it possible to install x2 instances of filevista on a single server?
So, I have 2 customers and they both would like to utilise filevista.
Rather than buying another server to keep them seperate, can I just install filevista twice on the same server but use different 'websites' for the different installations?

so for customer1, their web address would be and for customer2, their web address would be

Is this possible? Assuming of course that I will have to buy a second license for filevista.

Hi Aaron,
Yes, it's possible to install multiple instances of FileVista on a server.
However, the current installer can only install one instance.
So you will need to manually install the second instance using the web deploy package.
Manually installing is easy as you only need to create an application in IIS manager and give Modify permission on App_Data folder for the application pool identity. Alternatively you can use IIS WebDeploy extension to install the web deploy package automatically.

I asked the support team if I could use the same license for this purpose and I was told I could.
Below is the response I received.

Hi Bradley,
Yes, you can use your license key with different URLs on the same server.

Good morning,

We have purchased FileVista with an unlimited user license. I would like to
use the software with multiple homepages (various designs) with different
URLs depending on the bussiness unit that will use the system, can we have
multiple installations on the same server with our license key?
