License for Red Hat Web Server


I am in the process of building a web server using Red Hat 7.3 running the version of Apache that is on the install cd's. I obtained the cd's from the Red Hat 7.3 Bible.

My question is:
Is there any special license I will need to purchase to run this (truly awesome) server at work.
My manager has this thing about being legit. hahaha...

I have a copy of the GPL in the rear of the RH bible, and Apache has a copy of there agreement on their website. I have read these and all seems to state I don't need anything else. This is my first time with implmenting a web server and I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks in advance,

No special license is needed. Set it up and you are good to go.

This is the advantage of using GPL'ed software. You need not ask anybody's permission to use it. You are free to even modify it and redistribute copies of any GPL software, but the only binding clause is that you should also license it under GPL.
