Do I have to provide my CMS modifications under the GPL?

Say I was using a Web Content Management System that was covered under the GPL. If I made lots of modifications to the CMS, but only used it for my own site - do I need to provide my modified CMS to the public to download? I'm debating this with a friend - I thought it was only if you are planning to redistribute the software to others, but now I'm wondering - and certainly don't want to a afoul of the GPL.
