automatic conversion on web server?

On a web server that has numerous large documents in html form, I'd like to offer the user the option of downloading an appropriate ebook format.

Is this sort of thing allowed under Calibre's licensing?

It's actually a matter of doing the automated conversions on two systems, a Windows system running an apache server for development, and a Linux system running apache for production. I don't need to mess with any DRM or other copy protection.

When it comes to installing things, I'm a total spaz. Would it be better just to stick with letting the user download the html source in a zip file and let him do whatever conversion he wants? Is this something lots of folks are doing, so how to do conversions on a web server is already commonly known?

Thanks for any direction you care to offer.
