Subject RE: [users@httpd] Windows, Apache and an ASP Module
Date Tue, 21 Jun 2005 14:41:49 GMT
Thanks for the reply's, I am trying to run ASP not ASP.NET. The only
suitable package I found was SUN ASP which as you said was $500, the whole
idea of moving to Apache was that things would be free.

I guess I will have to stick to IIS or as Owen Boyle suggested forward
requests from apache to IIS.

The problem with ASP on Apache is that are you talking ASP or ASP.NET?

The best ASP on Apache is Sun ASP (aka Chilisoft) It will cost $500US. 
But it works well, I used it for about 2 years when I made the changes 
from Windows(IIS) to Linux(Apache).   I don't use it now as I slowly 
converted everything to PHP, But I had no problem when I was using it.

The problem is that most people are finally upgrading from ASP to 
ASP.NET while Sun ASP cannot run. ASP.NET has been out I think 5 years 
now. If you are looking to run .NET on Linux then look at the Mono 
Project. The project has taken the .NET Framework and ported it over. I 
don't know if the Mono Project will let you host ASP.NET websites on 
Linux. (I would think so).  But for your question, I don't know if you 
can install the Mono Project on Windows to be able to run ASP.NET on 
Apache. Or maybe install the Microsoft Framwork and link Apache to it 
through something. My Mono Prject experience is doing some C# internal 
applcations, not ASP.NET.

In short, ASP can be done easily with Sun ASP (But cost $500) ASP.NET 
through Apache on Windows I don't know.
