    Although this is only supported for Red Linux Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3 so I'm not sure about support.

    Apart from that there's only Apache:ASP but that using Perl as the scripting language which seems to defeat the point.

    Apart from those options I don't think you can. Microsoft have welded ASP to IIS which only runs on Windows unfortunately.

     With only Linux/Apache, you can't run Active Server Pages.
     But if you install Oracle9i Application Server on your Linux System, you can run Active Server Pages. You should read here for more information:

    Actually you can with Chilisoft as long as it's Red Hat and as Xtry is on fedora that may be an option. I didn't know about Oracle AS supporting ASP though, that's very interesting.

    Oracle9i will not run ASP pages.

    The documentation shows how to run Oracle9i in conjuction with IIS for ASp functionality and also suggests some tools for migrating to other technologies than ASP.

    Chilisoft is the only way I have ever seen to run ASP pages under Apache but it is limitied functionality and many ASP pages simply don't work properly under ChiliASP.

    Thanks Dave, I was wondering about OAS/ASP functionality as I'd never seen it advertised on the site and I know that Oracle made a deliberate decision to support Java over anything else for AS systems. I've never used Chilisoft but I know a man who has and he always implied that it was pretty good.
