When you deploy a Curl application to a server, you need to have a
(also referred to as a license key)
that indicates that your use of Curl is authorized.
There are two kinds of server licenses:
A Curl/Pro Server License unlocks the full capabilities of the Curl platform.
If you are an enterprise, you need to use a Curl/Pro license.
A Curl/Personal Server License unlocks most features of the Curl platform,
excepting several features whose primary value is for enterprise applications.
You can get a Curl/Personal Server License at no charge for your
Web site if you are a noncommercial user.
A list of the restricted features appears in the
"Getting Started" section of the Curl Developer's Guide documentation
that is included with the Curl IDE.
Each kind of server license takes the form of a file called
that you obtain from Curl and
place on your Web server to indicate that you are licensed to deploy
Curl applications on the Web.
In the simplest case, you put this file in the root directory of
your Web server.
Other options are also available and are described in the
"Configuring Your Web Server" section of the
Curl Developer's Guide.

The Curl IDE install kit includes two server license files that
you can use to deploy applications to a localhost server that
is installed on the same computer where you will test the application.
One of these files works as a Curl/Pro server license and the other works
as a Curl/Personal server license.
You should choose between these files based on which kind of
server license you expect to use when your application is eventually
deployed to a Web server for wider use.
The same "Configuring Your Web Server" section in the Curl Developer's Guide
explains where to find these files and how to use them.
