yes. its like customers asking for frontpage support on unix because windows is unreliable. Logic would indicate that maybe they shouldn't be using frontpage then, but when everyone with a copy of frontpage is a developer... >> What is the latest and most stable solution to providing ASP functionality on >> FreeBSD 4.x stable with Apache 1.3x (currently we are running with SSL, PHP, >> etc... in case there are any conflicts that we need to be aware of). >I see the >> perl port in the ports, anyone with experience with that? > >What exactly do you mean by ASP functionality? Anything you can do in asp >that you can't do in php/perl/whatever scripting language? The goal being to allow "developers" who want to use ASP because they are incapable of grasping perl/PHP/etc... to develop or migrate sites to our unix based servers. You are preaching to the choir as we use Perl/PHP to accomplish all our server based programing and scripting. Telling clients however that they need to migrate their code over to Perl/PHP just means we lose them to someone supporting windows/ASP.
