    first of all, I understand ASP isnt a huge request for linux users. I have some web customers that will only continue my services if i offer ASP and access database support. I got ODBC drivers installed and working, but i have been struggling for the longest time. Ive searched ASP on these forums and waded through the results to no avail.

    im running Debian Etch with Apache 2.2.3, Perl 5.8, APACHE::ASP and prerequisites installed, modperl2.0.2. No matter what i try, i get a page "Internal server error, additionally a 500 error has occured". My apache and isp config log files have no information at all to the errors, and I would really just like to get this working. If anyone is able to shed some light on this issue, or help me through the ASP setup, i would greatly appreciate it.

    here is my apache directives:

    PerlModule Apache::ASP
    <Files ~ (.asp)>
    SetHandler perl-script
    PerlHandler Apache::ASP
    PerlSetVar Global .
    PerlSetVar StateDir /tmp/asp

    if i remove this, i see code.. also, i am trying to run a test asp script, it is one line long and is only supposed to print the date. no formatting or anything on the page.

    Sorry man, but You have to let them go. SUN has Active Server Pages, but they stopped developing. The current release 4.0.2 only supports apache 2.0.54 and lower. 2.2 isn't supported and it may never be. There's gonna be 1 more release (4.0.3) and they were developing it for apache 2.2, but there hasn't been a word since. Because the stopped, my guess is they will only release some bug fixes.

    If your customers need ASP with PERL scripting there's still hope for you.
    I've got SUN ASP (VBscripting) running on my apache2.0.54 and my customers are very satisfied.
