I'd like to begin testing 2.1. Would there be any problem running 2.0.9 and 2.1 on the same server?

From what I can see, the directories would be totally independent, so it shouldn't be an issue, but I wanted to check with people more knowledgeable than I am. Thanks.

You will be fine doing that, but you don't want to use the same database for both, they need to be seperate.

Why not? Because you can run example tree SMF 2.0 in same server, same time. Of course need different folder, and different prefix or DB.

The same server is not an issue. Since each install requires the creation of a database, logically they would each have their own database. I currently run a 1.1.x, seven 2.0.9's and two 2.1 beta's on the same server.

They can be in the same database as long as each install has its own unique table prefix.

True. But since the OP's intentions are simply for testing 2.1, using separate databases would be much easier and less confusing.
