Is it possible to run ASP under LINUX

To make ASP run under Linux, PHP script files are saved as ASP extensions and are redirected to the PHP interpreter. So it looks like the server serves ASP files, but these are actually PHP scripts.

linux straight out the gate, can't run .asp true files. but you can add mime types, that will make apache run .asp files as php. really u can make apache run any file as php, with just a few lines of code in htaccess.

To get true asp (active server pages), running on linux you will need a processing engine to process the files, like php is a processing engine.

Here are some programs you can install on linux to run asp truely. (still aint built to do it, asp is a windows envoirnment language)

Mod Mono:

and Example, you can install Tomcat to run .jsp file on linux. JSP also is perferrable on windows systems.
