    How to enable asp in apache2

    I'm running apache2 webserver on my local machine and would like to know how to enable asp pages to load up. Was using iis b4 but apache seems to be a better option due to its dynamism.

    IIS4 is >10 years old, and ASP on Apache is just NOT a good idea.

    If you want to run ASP, you need to use IIS. IIS 6 is the current version with Windows Server 2003, 5.1 with Windows XP, and 7 with Vista / Server 2008.

    If you must run ASP with Apache, you can download and install a module that simulates ASP in Apache, although I am not aware of how reliable it is.

    Short take-home message: Use IIS, not Apache.

    I'll keep that in mind I haven't enabled the module yet. Using just 1 web server seems more appropriate then 2 running in the background. Thx for your post.
