    Unhappy loading IIS onto my computer

    I would like to test my asp and mysql pages and forms on my computer - is IIS the best way of doing this?

    Will putting IIS onto my computer change any setting, or cause any problems?

    Your help is appreciated

    MS Access is the database supposed to be used with ASP, not mysql

    It wouldn't make any difference really only if you already have something like Apache on there, IIS will conflict with it. Also how much ram do you have? I know IIS doesn't take too much extra, but it's always wise to have a decent amount

    Note: I do not test code. I just write it off the top of my head. There might be bugs in it! But if any thing I gave you the overall theory of what you need to accomplish. Also there are plenty of other ways to accomplish this same thing. I just gave one example of it. Other ways might be faster and more efficient.

    that misconseption is just one of the many silly reasons that people think asp is crap asp supports a LOT of databases but most php programmers i know delight in telling me that it only supports access even though i have applications on my server that use mysql and mssql

    that is great but...

    Thank you for replying, I appreciate the interest - How do you test your ASP and access scripts?

    I was thinking about putting windows server 2003 onto another computer, creating a network and testing it locally.

    What do you think? Is there an easier way or Is this a good idea?

    No need for all that, after you get IIS set up and running just test it locally by typing http://localhost/[doc path]/filename.asp. For instance, if the file test.asp is stored in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\files, the path would be http://localhost/files/test.asp.

    You can use IIS if you have Win2K or WinXP Pro or Win2003 server, if you have Win XP home there is a workaround to install IIS but it is easier to just install the Cassini server and use that to test your ASP.NET scripts
