ASP is a Microsoft technology. I'm not sure, but I think you will have to try PHP or Python instead.

Well there's mod_frontpage for FrontPage extensions. I can't remember if there's a separate mod_asp or not.

Be warned that if you are trying to run actual ASP code (like what you would run under IIS), Apache::ASP is probably not what you are looking for. Apache::ASP allows you to make .asp pages using Perl code, not VB/ASP code.

Also, mod_mono only implements ASP.NET, which is NOT backwards compatible with regular ASP code.

I've been researching this subject too...without much luck.

Lightbulb ASP in Linux

ASP can run in Linux using software from two companies. Sun Java Active Server Pages 4.0 will allow it ONLY in Red Hat Linux 7.3. Sun modified the Chilisoft 3.6.2 application that from what I hear could run on any version of RH. Problem is nobody and I mean NOBODY sells Chilisoft anymore. The Sun rep told me that it only works with 7.3 and they aren't planning to make it work with any other verion until Enterprise. Splain dat. I have been looking for the same solution and today I found another company that can do it. Stryon, I have obviously never used it but the sales rep said that it will run on any version of Red Hat. That is the only one that I asked about. However, with every good there is a bad. The list price is $1395.00 for the software plus $279.00 for support. I paid almost $500.00 for the Sun version of Chilisoft.

Good Luck....Happy Hunting

Sun One ASP 4.0.1 on Slackware 10.0

Actually, I just got walked through setting up Sun One ASP 4.0.1 on Slackware 10.0. So the short answer is yes, it is possible to run ASP code (VBScript) on Linux. I might be doing a How-To. Anyone interested?

ASP 3 complient is Chilisoft (or Sun Java Active Server Pages or whatever nonsense they are calling it this week) and Instant ASP. Something I find funny about Instant ASP is that they don't run it on their own ASP based site where they try to sell you the product that is supposed to provide the same functionality...

I have limited experience with Chilisoft installs. The limitation for installs for us as I understood it was always the Apache version, not the distro. So it may well be that it only installs on Apache 1.3.x. Something to consider though, I heard Sun wasn't very interested in dealing with it anymore. I used to work for a Sun shop that was chaulked full of Sun Certified employees that dealt with Sun reps on a daily basis.

My suggestion is to move to ASP.NET with Mono (mod_mono/XSP). It works fairly well with c# but the XSP server is not all that beefy or reliable ATM. (No or jscript until later this year) I have had good results stress testing ONLY with bytefx assembly for mysql. I have been waiting/testing for Oracle functionality for around a year now. While I can do a lot of stuff now using it these days via oci under 9i and 10g, I can also kill mono very easily. And a bunch of assemblies still can't fill datasets using a dataadapter. I understand DB2, ODBC, OLEDb and the rest are virtually unusable in the same manner as Oracle. You sort of have to tippy toe around to use them. But if you are using mysql, you should be in for a relatively easy ride. I believe Postgres and firefox are also relatively worked out assemblies, but I cannot really comment on them myself as I have not tested them.

That being said, it looks as if Mono is here to stay. The developers have big plans for XSP/mod_mono in the upcoming 1.2 release slated for this december(?). So in the long run, conforming to the language of the time and using the enviroment that seems to be 'the one' might save you a lot of time/cost in the future. But right now you may have some problems. Either way, you have to realize that all of this is dependent on MS not suing anybody. If you are afraid of that, just use the alternative to .NET on the already stable/feature filled Tomcat, Sun One App Server, Websphere, Weblogic, etc......
