EE, Buddypress, subdomains and memberships

Okay, so I’ve got to build a complicated website. It’s a site with health classes (events). Users whom have payed for the event should also be able to download (restricted) PDFs with course information.
On top of that, there has to be some kind of community. Ideally, buddypress.
I have some ideas on how to achieve this but I could really use some advice from the experts ๐Ÿ™‚

Then another question. If I have 2 subdomains I want to install EE on, will I need to purchase the plugin twice?
I need to know because the on the same website, there will also be courses (using EE) available for the coaches whom will be running the health classes. I’m playing with the idea of creating a main site ( for the general users, and a subdomain for the coaches (

Best regards,
Florence Gielen

I’ve actually come up with a solution. I will be building a private buddypress site with members-only restricted content (where members can download pdfs). Only users with an invitation code will be able to register. They will get their invitation codes at the health classes (they can sign up with EE). This way EE doesn’t need to integrate with buddypress.
That leaves one question. Will I need to purchase EE twice if I want to install it on 2 subdomains?

Never mind. Found the answer..
“Installing Event Espresso on a sub-domain or in a sub-folder counts as a unique site.”
