    hello, i am sorry but i am a complete newbie to cpanel and website hosting. i just developed an asp.net web application for a small firm. The firm already has an existing website that is hosted on cpanel. so i am wondering if there is a way to upgrade the existing cpanel plan to accommodate asp.net webpages. thanks

    Hello:

    The only support that cPanel provides at all for ASP.NET is via an Apache module named mod_mono. mod_mono will not work with all ASP.NET scripts, and it is not compatible with "classic" ASP. If you need ASP.NET support, it is really better for you to provision a Windows server, which can run ASP.NET scripts natively.

    You can read about mod_mono here:


    Mod mono - Mono


    We only provide very limited support for mod_mono. The only support we provide for mod_mono is to make sure that EasyApache builds it. We cannot help you install or deploy your ASP.NET scripts.

    You will need an expert mod_mono administrator in order to use this. We do not provide support at all for configuring mod_mono or your ASP.NET scripts.

    Keeping these things in mind, if you have retained the services of an expert mod_mono administrator, you can install mod_mono using EasyApache. mod_mono is listed in step #6, "Exhaustive Options List", of EasyApache.

    Again I emphasize that if you are not familiar with mod_mono, you will definitely need the services of an expert mod_mono administrator. If you need to host many sites that use ASP.NET scripts, it is really best for you to get a Windows server, because mod_mono is not a complete implementation of ASP.NET and will not necessarily work with all of the scripts you may want to host for your customers.

    Hello I was wondering if you could now support asp.net 4.0 with a new mod_mono module? I also need to host a asp.net webservice for my licensing system for my software and was wondering if you could point me in the right direction on how to install mod_mono so that it could host asp.net 4.0 apps for my cpanel server...I am the only one using my cpanel server and I do have root access to my cpanel server and I have root ssh access to my server as well. Please steer me in the right direction on how to install mod_mono so that it can host asp.net 4.0 apps and I can still use cpanel for managing the site that hosts my asp.net 4.0 apps and my other site that hosts my html pages website.

    Hello :)

    The version of mod_mono provided through cPanel has been deprecated. We strongly discourage its use unless absolutely necessary.

    Thank you.

    Yes I know that cpanel no longer supports the mod_mono module that is supplied by cpanel but I need to be able to run my asp.net 4.0 webservices on my vps and I was wondering if someone would please tell me how to install mod_mono version 2.10 on my vps so that I can host my websites with cpanel and use the asp.net 4.0 capabilites of mod_mono 2.10 so that I can run my licensing webservices on my cpanel vps without breaking cpanel.
    Any help with this is appreciated. :)
