I have installed ASP modules using easyapache. Now the asp files are recognized by the server and is woring but the asp command is NOT working

for example I have added

response.write "test"

but I DO NOT see an output.

I have an asp file with includes for header and Footer but it is NOT visible on the site.

How can I make it work. If anyone has configured asp, please let me know.

I'm sorry, this post isn't going to answer your questions, but it's more of an fyi.

We've installed Apache::ASP, but almost for nothing, because when you really look at it, it's just for perl scripting, something that you could already do with cgi or .pl files.

Here's an excerpt from their site:

Apache::ASP provides an Active Server Pages port to the Apache Web Server with Perl scripting only, and enables developing of dynamic web applications with session management and embedded Perl code

My recommendation: use this if you are serious about running ASP on your linux box. It'll run under Apache. and supports more than just perl scripting, but support for Microsoft ASP 3.0, VBScript/JScript 5.5, and XML.

I haven't personally run that version with Cpanel, but I'm assuming that you are going to be recompiling apache anyways, so that'd be your best bet.

Hope this helps.
