Firstly, Hi members of CF
I've signed up today and after some serious 'lurking' and ofcourse, reading of the Rules & Posting Guidelines,
I've come to the conclusion that typing this question is my last resort.
My issue is an extremely basic, yet frustrating one:
directly form W3Schools into a text document, saved as a .ASP file, which I then uploaded to my FTP server,Code:<html> <body> <% response.write("My first ASP script!") %> </body> </html>
I'm left with a webpage that looks like this:
(The webpage shown in the print screen can be viewed here)
I would also be interested to know if any of you were able to view it differently.
So anyway here come the variables:
I'm using a dinky little Eee PC laptop (however I do have it connected up to a 1024x768 monitor), it's running a legitimate copy of Windows XP professional, but, this bad boy doesn't have a disc drive! Besides it was provided by my school and so Windows XP was pre-installed and we were not given the disc. The reason I'm mentioning all of this is because I'm unsure whether this issue is being caused by my lack of IIS or any form of web server software per se; I thought being the owner of an actual website would allow me to bypass the need for a program like IIS or Apache, am I wrong?
Thankyou for any help or advice in advanced, and apologies for the length of this question and my incompetence as an ASP newb.
