Let me ask it this way: suppose you used ASP instead.  As I understand
ASP, it's like PHP except it's proprietary.  Would ASP's license be a

Maybe you're using "the server" to encompass too much.  If I have an
Apache-based web site, then the web server is Apache.  If I have a
Python CGI script that the Apache server runs, the CGI script is not

not be affected by the GPL if Apache used the GPL.  Karrigell scripts
seem to me to work out about the same way.
