License for php/ mysql

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I know I've seen this discussed but can't seem to find the right search
term. Is a online retailer using -say zen cart or some other open
source store front required to have php or mysql license?

Is it required of the host? Say they have it on their server?

The legalease is less than reader friendly for my 'reading level'...

You've been drinking M$'s CoolAid for too long.  I believe php is  
open-source software

and MySQL has gone the "RedHat" paid-support model

DeeDee, don't press that button!  DeeDee!  NO!  Dee...

Both are open source, and you're free to use and distribute both as
long as the copyright notice remains intact. Neither requires you to
purchase a license, as the license is open source. The companies who
develop and support the PHP interpreter and MySQL database server
applications earn their money by offering additional support and
services for the server owners/administrators who don't want to bother
too much with reading manuals.

Those who develop PHP scripts (such as a shopping cart) can make up
their own license/contract as they see fit (and if they use code from a
third party, include license terms from that third party).
