View Full Version : Asp not opening!

07-26-2007, 05:33 PM
Hi. I am running WinXP. I just recently installed Apache2. (I verified this by opening IE and typing 'localhost' and getting the Apache Welcom-page. But the problem is, the webpages i made that have asp content in them are not displayed correctly. i.e. only the HTML code is shown in IE, asp code is ignored. Also wen i open a .asp page (localhost/mypage.asp), IE shows the "waddaya wanna do? save/Open" dialog, instead of showing the compiled asp page. Whats the problem?

ASP will only run on IIS...so it won't work on Apache.

There are, in fact, several ways (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ASP+on+Apache) to get Apache to serve ASP pages. I wouldn't really recommend it though. There's nothing to stop you running two servers on your dev machine - I run IIS and WAMP. But for production, I'd keep PHP on Apache and ASP on IIS. Don't cross the streams ;)
