Web Server --  Abyss Web Server

Posted on 2010-11-21
Last Modified: 2012-06-22
Per website    Abyss Web Server supports  all editions of Windows  XP.  My questions:
1)  Can you confirm that Abyss Web Server works fine with Windows HP Home and allows to use "Classic ASP" ?
2) Any advise -- Is there another Web Server that works fine with Windows HP Home and allows to use "Classic ASP" ?

Note that Abyss Web Server supports "Classic ASP" thru an addon from another company.  See this page:

Don't know about 'better'.  I'm using XP-Pro and IIS5.1  This page mentions "Baby Web Server" which one person liked.
Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

I recommend IIS, its free with Windows XP and you can run asp, all versions without any addon. While PHP, Perl, CF etc with a little bit work around and that better to manage also.
