Thread: MySQL Lic.

    MySQL Lic.

    I know someone knows this off the top of their heads, an reading the licence agreement for anything sucks, so:

    I own a business, I'm making money (not much).
    Can I use MySQL for free and profit from it ?

    i believe so. i think you only have to pay if you are redistributing it without the source code with your own non open source program....i'm not really sure though

    From the MySQL website:

    The software from MySQL AB that you can download from the pages listed below, is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) and is provided "as is" and is without any warranty.

    You need to purchase commercial non-GPL MySQL licenses:

    If you distribute MySQL Software with your non open source software,
    If you want warranty from MySQL AB for the MySQL software,
    If you want to support MySQL development.

    MySQL Licenses, Support and Training can be easily purchased online.
    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    This is America calling!
