Help installing Apache2::ASP on Debian Etch

Posted on 2008-11-13
Last Modified: 2013-12-06
I have tried to install mod_perl2, Apache2::request and Apache2::ASP on Debian Etch with Apache2.
I've used CPAN and tried manually doing them from source files.

I'm new to unix and I cannot find a single guide anywhere that works.

I have Apache2 running and would like to support ASP pages. ASPX is also a plus but I really need ASP.

Can someone help me?

    As far as I know you need MONO to get ASP support for Linux. Check the following Link, but install it from the debian repositories as it should be included there as far as I know.

    Following up on rindi's advice, I've used the following for Apache and Apache2, respectively.

    libapache-mod-mono      - Run ASP.NET Pages on UNIX with Apache and Mono                    
    libapache2-mod-mono    - Run ASP.NET Pages on UNIX with Apache 2 and Mono

    Install it like this (apt-get)
    apt-get install libapache-mod-mono
    apt-get install libapache2-mod-mono


    aptitude install  libapache-mod-mono
    aptitude install  libapache2-mod-mono

    Additonally, the following search has quite a few Mono related packages, including a stand alone web server.

    aptitude search mono

    I have done the  libapache2-mod-mono but it only works with aspx files. I cannot get it to do normal ASP files.

    I went to the site but it shows Red Hat as being discontinued.  Isnt Debian part of Red Hat or which one should I choose for Debian? It's not listed as a supported OS.

    Debian and Redhat are completely different Linux distro's. Redhat uses Yum and rpm for it's packaging, and Debian uses apt-get. Redhat is commercial, and Debian is completely open source and community based. Redhat launched Fedora-Core, which is opensource and community based, and it builds it's redhat versions based on the Fedora-Core distros.
