.asp pages are pages for windows webservers and not Linux Servers. There is a tool called apache asp to run them (at least partially) on linux, but I dont have any experience how complete this solution is. See

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

apache::asp doesn't provide vbscript, which makes it useless for about 98% of the asp code in existence. Sun used to have an asp emulator for linux that worked pretty well, I know that Snitz forums (an asp-based forum) ran on the sun one emulation.

Your best bet if you need to offer asp is to use a windows server.
