What is required to run ASP
Posted: 23 Apr 01
Some of the other FAQ may mention this, but in my opinion there seems to be a growing number of users who do not realize the reasources required for running ASP (Active Server Pages)
there are three major things (3rd one optional, but recomended)
1. A Server
The Server must be one of the 2
Windows NT 4 w/ SP4 or higher
Win98 (read info in #2)
2. A WebServer installed on the server
WinNT4 must have IIS4 installed
Windows 2000 must have IIS5 installed
Any non-server Windows OS, can use PWS as an ASP hosting
but this is highly unrecomended, as it is basically an
unsecure toy that only allows 10 connections at a time
3. A IDE (Interface Development Enviroment , I get that right?)
Two development enviroments I am familiar with are
Microsoft Visual Interdev (most popular and recomended)
if you are wondering, if your free hosting provider (geocities, tripod, freeservers, etc) supports ASP, the answer is 99% no.
however there is only one (semi-reliable) hosting provider for free, that supports ASP (with limitations) and thats brinkster.com
Note: It is possible to run ASP off a Unix server, however this requires that Apache webserver is installed, and includes the patch/update from I belive chilesoft that allows Apache to execute ASP, this is in my opinion, much more of a beta/experimental than PWS, although I have heard it is least more secure than using PWS(Personal Web Server)
