    Am a little confused.

    Want to create a database driven site using php/mysql. Am currently using the 30 day evaluation version of mySQL, and want eventually to put the database I create onto my hosts server for public glory.

    When I pay for mySQL hosting on the server, does that mean that they pay the license or me???? Have tried to decrypt the mysql ocumentation but am none the wiser - and my hosts are less than hugely helpful (I know, get a new one - but they are potentially cheap).

    Anyone know the score?

    (for uk members who think I am betraying the mother tongue, I am bowing to the American spelling of Licence because all the code I'm trying to learn keeps leaning that way...!)

    I believe the new versions of mySQL are totally free, they are now on the GPL license.
    But to answer your question...the host would usually pay all appropriate software licensing fees.

    Indeed, the 30-day trial version of which you speak is out of date. MySQL has been released for free on all platforms including Windows.

    Yes but that version is still in Beta. Anything after 3.22 is free.

    When the new version is released as a final version just download it and install it like it says in the book.

    I'd like to note that the basic functionality of the current 3.23 beta builds is quite stable. Unless you're going to be playing with some of the new features that were added in 3.23, I wouldn't worry too much about using the current beta.
