Yes, I am absolutely interested in a step-by-step guide. Let me tell you what I am facing at this point.

I am trying to install Sun One ASP 4.6.0x in my Debian 6. Unfortunately I am having 2 issues that I would like the huge, enormous favor anybody here in the forum provide with 2 lines of help since I can't move ahead with the installation

Right after installing it I got the following issue from the setup:

a. that it can't find the "libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2" library while in fact I have /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.13 . To workaround it I made symbolic link based on a suggestion I read on a forum so the setup ran away into the next step

b. however it's not finding the Apache 2.0.52 I have installed. I specifically checked out and this copy of Sun One ASP covers this version, in fact I installed this version specifically in order to comply with it. The problem is that it doesn't find it, it doesn't find the port.

c. next step it tells about pre-existing 'libraries' not installed, while not specifying which libraries are not installed. I have a fresh Debian 6 Linux installed

A million thanks to anyone that could give help how to have Sun One ASP properly installed

[Unauthorized Sun One ASP package location removed]

I absolutely need this working urgently

Regards
Diego Sendra

We volunteer our time here...expecting 'urgent' help is fairly rude. Also, you have posted the same question three times, and re-opened threads from 2004 and 2005 to do it.

The reason you're having problems, is that Sun One is ancient, and no longer supported. That's why it's asking for libraries that are old, and can't be installed correctly. You might try to go through the install.sh file step by step, and see if you can get it to look for current libraries/paths, but even then it's no guarantee you'll get it working at all. It would be like trying to get a Windows 95 program running on Windows 8....you MIGHT be able to, but even if you did, it wouldn't work correctly.

I am not trying to be rude, I am trying to point out something absolutely obvious that should run in every Linux, natively in every version of Apache. I am not saying ASP is better than PHP, I think they are complementary and ASP is alive since 1998 when PHP didn't even exist

Let me tell you something, there are not specifically housewives that would be willing to migrate their Windows-based computers into Linux to play their solitaire game, but rather programmers. And there are two huge groups of programmers in the world, those that started up learning Windows languages back in the DOS days in the 80's when they were kids, and those who started learning C in Unix machines. Still, there's a huge, enormous group of programmers that made their websites in ASP back in the day and that simply love the language

In my humble oppinion, having Linux /Apache natively support ASP, would be something essential that should have been thought of since its inception and the best move possible towards having hundreds of thousands of Microsoft coders migrate into Linux, painless and efficiently

It's not that I am rude, I just can't understand why basic things are not thought of. At this point I have countless ASP developments that I have to support and having Linux not being able to run it leads me only to wipe-out the linux partition and forget about trying Linux ever again

You're being rude by asking for 'urgent' help...and by triple-posting your question, and reopening old threads.

And a very quick Google search turns up all sorts of interesting things:
http://www.apache-asp.org/install.html

ASP is supported under Apache, and has been. If you want to continue to use ASP, go right ahead...no one is forcing you to update to current technology.

apache-asp doesn't run/interprets VBscript code at all, it will let you run .asp files only if they have perl code inside. That's not what I am after

I am not being rude, I want solutions

Please post your thread / question once and in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. This thread is closed because it is a duplicate. Also please don't necro-post unless your reply significantly helps enlighten people wrt the threads topic. Do not necro-post to tack on your own questions: create a new thread instead. Besides that you have posted an unauthorized Sun ONE Active Server Pages URI which I have removed. Posts pruned 'n grafted onto new thread & closed.
