    Hi,

    Has anyone had any success with using ASP pages on a linux sytem?

    I have several applications I may want to purchase, that are ASP based, apparently you can convert using chillisoft software?

    Anyone tried it? does it work ok? are there any problems with it?

    Cheers

    i have installed it once for a client... you can get the sea from

    http://layer1.cpanel.net/

    the module is as under:

    Latest apache-asp (unsupported):
    apache-asp.sea (Tue Jun 8 13:02:33 2004)

    i just know that it works.. but it might cause some memory leaks as well :(

    all the best..

    apache::asp is not the same thing as chilisoft asp. apache::asp is the free version that runs on perl and doesn't have 1/2 the funtionality of true asp. chilisoft is several $100/server, but is supposed to have 80-90%+ asp functionality. There are some other asp apps besides chilisoft also.

    As a developer, I also wanted to run asp, but decided a windows server might do a better job at it.

    We ran chilisoft ASP (now SUN ASP ??) for a short while but customers seemed to find the incompatibilites right away and it was a waste of time and money.

    Now we will just put them on a W2k3 box instead.

    When I did asp on rhl it conflicted with curl and wouldnt allow apache to start. Once I removed the asp module curl and apache worked fine.

    cURL is much more important then asp. If you really want asp that bad, I would have to agree, just get a windows box and keep your fingers crossed so it doesnt blow up.

    Hi,

    Thanks both for your comments, you just confirm what others are saying and advice I have had from several tech help guys.

    I'll leave it be I think

    Let Linux be Linux and Microsoft be well... Microsoft.

    Cheers for all your replies.

    Did you have version 3.xx? Coz the new SunOneASP 4.xx is much more compatible.
