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 </Files> 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.
