I am having trouble getting .ASP to work for me. Can Cpanel handle .asp? If so, where do you put the .ASP extensions? Do they go into the CGI-Bin? Please help! I will be forever grateful!

ASP has nothing to do with cpanel itself. It is more of an issue with having or not having a windows server or another application running on a Unix server. In most cases considering a stardard configuration you cannot run asp pages.

However it is possibly to run asp on a Unix server. You must install Mono with an aspx server on your Unix Server please see http://www.mono-project.com/Guidelines:Application_Portability

cPanel/WHM does include support for mod_mono but it is disabled by default. ASP support will be limited to that which mono supports.

To David: Where is Mono?

Hi, I am having the same issue as A1 hosting.

Where is the mod_mono located so that I can turn it on? Is it in CPanel or WHM?

We are close and this is the last step.:confused:

mod_mono - .ASP - default set to off. How do I turn it on?

I have been trying to get the .ASP to work for me and have gotten some help through the forums which have gotten me closer. Thank you! I am trying to locate the mod_mono area in the Cpanel as it is turned off by default ? Is it in CPanel or WHM? Please help...I know it is probably right in front of me. I am using Cpanel 10.9.

In the WHM interface, go to the cPanel section and click on Plugins (add-ons in cPanel 10 I believe). Then check the box for "modmono" and click save at the bottom of the page.

How is the load of mod_mono? How does it compare to Sun Java System Active Server Pages 4.0?

What about the purchased ad on?

Has anyone purchased the ASP.NET additional feature? And if so, did it work?

I have multiple sites with couple of different host companies and am looking to put them all on a VPS server. I have been playing with Plesk and don't really care for it. 3 of my sites have cPanel. My problem is that I have a few Frontpage databases that run .asp pages and from what I have been told cPanel will not work. Is this correct?

ASP is not very compatible with Unix/Linux/BSD base servers as it is inherently a Microsoft Technology. There are various implementations, both commercial and open source, that can give you some of the compatibility of ASP. First you must determine:

Do I need Classic ASP? or
Do I need ASP.NET?

ASP.NET can be handled to some degree by ModMono. A simple install script is available at http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/attachment.cgi?id=403 A more complete version will eventually be made available via easyapache. You can find documentation regarding ModMono at mono-project.org

Classic ASP can be handled via what used to be known as chilisoft ASP: http://www.sun.com/software/chilisoft/ (I'm not certain if this also supports ASP.NET)

There are other projects that do some of this. A google for Apache + ASP might be a good start.
