Apache::ASP provides an Active Server Pages port to the Apache Web Server and enables developing of dynamic web applications with session management and embedded Perl code.

NOTE: The only type of ASP scripts that are supported by Apache::ASP is ASP code already written in Perl. In order for NT/Windows/IIS ASP pages written in VBScript to work using Apache::ASP, the ASP code must be rewritten in Perl.

Connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and do the following.

  1. Install The mod_perl Apache Module.

  2. Install the perl-lwp Pre-Packaged Perl5 Module.

  3. Install the Apache::ASP Perl module. Follow the directions that correspond to your Virtual Server O/S.

  4. Modify your web server configuration file (~/www/conf/httpd.conf) to make a place for Apache::ASP to reside:

    <Files ~ "\.asp$">
     ## tell Apache to give .asp files to mod_perl
     SetHandler perl-script
     ## tell mod_perl to give .asp files to Apache::ASP handler
     PerlHandler Apache::ASP
     ## set global home
     PerlSetVar Global /tmp
     ## set state home (each ASP application has its own
     ## unique state directory)
     PerlSetVar StateDir /tmp/test_app
     ## use strict
     PerlSetVar UseStrict 1
     ## debug information
     PerlSetVar Debug 1

  5. Restart Your Web Server

  6. Make a simple Apache::ASP page and place it in your ~/www/htdocs directory:

    <title>Apache::ASP Test</title>
    For loop incrementing font size: <p>
    <% for(1..5) { %>
         <!-- iterated html text -->
         <font size="<%=$_%>" > Size = <%=$_%> </font> <br>
    <% } %>

  7. Fetch the page with a web browser and watch it work!
