MySQL License

Do I have to pay a commercial MySQL license to install WAMP with my PHP-script using MySQL on the localhost of a company, asking monthly money for it from the company? WIth other words I'm selling my PHP script to the company and use WAMP to load it on their localhost.

I know WAMP is free for commercial use, but MySQL also comes with a commercial license... I know it is open source GPL but it doesn't describe my situation.

I already read everything on their website so a link to their license page is not necessary. I just hope someone can give me the answer on my specific situation as it is unclear for me right now. Thank you!

To be absolutely clear you should take this up with MySQL and not us

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.1.3 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache 2.4.29/2.2.31> <PHP 7.2/7.1/7.0/5.6/5.5/5.4> <MySQL 5.7.19/5.6.39/5.5.28>
<MariaDB 10.2.14> <phpMyAdmin4.8.1> <MySQL Workbench 6.3.10>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
