Apache and "ASP type" pages

Hello,

I recently set up apache, tomcat, SQL Server, and kavachart on my server (Windows Server 2003).  My goal was just to test some things out and see what was possible.  In the past i have only worked with a IBM DB and apache web server to have real time data from the DB on the intranet through the use of net.data.  Now that i am running SQL Server net.data is no longer an option, it seems the popular option is ASP.  I don't really want to jump through the hoops necessary in order to run ASP pages over the apache web server.  are there any other alternatives for this?

Thanks.

Hello  Navicerts
In fact for apache web server PHP is more suitable and ASP
You could use ASP with IIS rather than ASP with Apache

For PHP
I would suggest you to use phptriad
When you download phptriad , its a tool that  includes apache webserver, php and mysql database so what you get it all integrated softwares and you can develop and build a databased oriented applications

Else by traditional way
1> download php from www.php.net
2> Download apache from http://apache.org
3> download MySQL from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/4.0.html

and then configure all to work together

I would recommend you to have a go at phptriad


 Also check out  =>  http://www.apachefriends.org/en/index.html        ****configures MySQL for apache ***
also pls do visit     http://www.sitepoint.com/article/php-amp-mysql-1-installation 
here you will find step by step procedures for installing PHP, MySQl and Apache on Windows and Linux

In order to enable PHP to run on Apache

To enable php on apache
Open your httpd.conf file and look for the following lines:

LoadModule php4_module  
libexec/libphp4.so

The above line loads the module.  Then you also need to have a line to tell it to process the .php file.  The line for this is:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

There should be sections for each of these lines.  
The AddType line is usually present, but commented (#) out.

You can also add more extensions that you want to process as well, like .php .php3 .php4 etc.

Good Luck
Ronan

Hello,

Thank you for the response!  I got impatient and started installing some things before your advice :)  I installed Apache 2.x and php5 as well as JRE and Tomcat.  I have MS SQL Server and so far was able to get the web server running and display some database files to a web page.  I did the entire HTML and PHP through notepad, is there a better option that you know of?  Particularly I was looking at Zend Studio software, has anyone had any experience with this?

Thank You All
