    What type of licence is the MySQL software that came with cPanel? Is it GPL or commercial?

    Thank you.

    Go on, have a guess
    It uses the standard MySQL packages released under the GPL.

    I see. I though non-GPL licenced product, like cPanel, need to acquire commercial licence to operate MySQL?

    Nope, since all they are doing is installing the MySQL provided tarballs/rpm - no need to license that under the GPL at all.
