Our company uses a .aspx webpage to provide access to a tool called the LIFO calculator. We are moving over to an Apache Linux based server with our migration to wordpress, and are aware we will be loosing the ability to publish the LIFO calculator in its current .aspx form. With our IT guy now being part-time/semi-retired, we were trying to get a feel of what the time commitment would likely be for completing such a rewrite in .php form. I have our IT guys word that he would be able to write the new .php code, but he has no idea how long that may take. He is the same person whom originally created the LIFO Calculator, so he is familiar with the inner-workings of the LIFO Calculator. Could someone familiar with the process of writing .php code based on .aspx language provide a rough estimate of what the time commitment may be (in form of hours; i.e. 50, 200 etc.) for completing this task? I've attached the LIFO Calculators .aspx source code saved in a .txt file. NOTE:
I'm not asking for an analysis of the fact that our current .aspx page has compatibility issues. That fact is known, and will cease to exist if/when the site is converted to a .php page. There are instructions that I CLEARLY pointed out and provided a link that shows step-by-step instruction on how to make the LIFO calculator properly display. What I am asking for is this:
Is there a general idea on how much time it would require our in-house IT staff (1 person) to take the current .aspx site and write it as a .php page?

There are two important settings that have to be modified in your internet browser for the page to properly load.): http://lifopro.com/CalculatorCompatibility.html
