Hello all! Recently I am developing my own dynamic webpages. I have installed Apache 2.2 and the server was tested to be ok (i.e. "it works" was shown when I typed http://localhost/ in my IE9 browser). I was using Dreamweaver (DW) MX. I successfully linked an Access database to my unfinished ASP webpage by Apache 2.2 and I could drag a database item appearing on the right hand side of DW MXand drop it onto the unfinished ASP webpage. When I saved the finished webpage as .asp webpage and previewd it, what I saw in the browser was only all the source codes of the .asp webpage.
Was it due to the problem that Apache 2.2 could only process static webpages so the .asp webpage could not be shown? Please indicate other steps that I have missed if any. Thank you for your helpful answering!
ASP requires Microsoft IIS server - it does not run under Apache. Classic ASP is very old technology that has not been updated in over 10 years. If you are just learning how to develop dynamic pages, there are better choices, like PHP. Is there a reason you've choosen ASP?
Thank you so much for your reply! I just thought ASP could match well with Apache. That was why I chose it. What about ASP.net? Can it rull well with Apache? I am currently also trying to use PHP. The changing of names in documents is quite hard for me. Any suggestion for easy implementation of PHP? Thanks again!
I mean, if there is a combination of PHP and Apache of specific versions for Window Vista Home Basic which does not need too much renaming of codes or which does not need any renaming of them at all. Mr Summers, your guidance is much appreciated!
