Arrow ASP nonsense with Apache


This is a bit of an oxymoron.
I'm trying to convert a lad at work here to linux, and I've got him partly on the way because XP home don't support IIS (what a great decision). So, he's got apache going which was easy and made him a bit relaxed, but he's an ASP/cold fusion developer, so needs that. Coldfusion was a breeze, which is again great, but we just can't seem to get ASP working. We've tried Apache::ASP - no luck there, (and if I'm not wrong, don't you have to write perl code rather than ASP), also tried Chillisoft, but it will only install on windows with apache <=1.3.2 which is a little old now and way different from 1.3.22.
So anyone got any ideas?
Thanks

God I hope slack goes on tonight with no probls.

First, look at the following URL:

http://www.chilisoft.com/chiliasp/de...target=windows

Chilisoft ASP 3.6 runs on Apache 1.3.20 (one point three point twenty). That might help you since Apache 1.3.20 is fairly close to your current running system of Apache 1.3.22.

Second, ASP is not -really- a language. You can use a number of different languages such as VBScript, JScript and PerlScript in ASP pages. So, you can write the ASP pages in Perl, you just don't have to (unless you meant in regards to Apache::ASP).

Why not put your friend on a linux box with apache and chilisoft? If you do, be careful, I tried running Chilisoft sometime back (a year or more ago when I wanted the 'quick' not 'right' thing to do ((the right thing being porting the code to a REAL programming language, instead of bastardized VB fodder))), the damn thing would run away with 99% of the CPU.

We tried ChilliSoft with xx.22, but it didn't work. The install wouldn't pick up apache. No matter I guess.
I'd like to get him on a linux box, but we don't have them at work (I am a contractor). I try and try to get him to use JSP ))
No luck there however, he'll probably try to stick with CF unfortunately.

Not that I like ColdFusion much either, but it is certainly better than MS ASP, right? Neither are real languages, so your co-worker will eventually run into situations where he will be limited in what he can do.

What about going back a bit and installing Apache 1.3.20, instead of 1.3.22? The Chilisoft installer may have some sort of version limiter or some(crap)thing like that. Keep your httpd.conf file backed up, remove the version you have now and downgrade to 1.3.20 -- that is the version Chilisoft says it supports. Then, just put your httpd.conf file back in its place (overwriting the default from the second installation) and the whole thing should run as before.

It's worth a shot.
