Transfering ASP Classic Pages from Windows to Linux
Has anyone tried a solution to host ASP classic pages on something else than IIS/Windows? I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to try one of the solutions for that problem. I know about Sun Java System Active Server Pages (or Chilisoft) but haven't tried it. Is there any big problems with those solutions? Does the hosted code need change?
You could try with Apache::ASP in your Linux, but I'll use it just for the meantime until can migrate the application to other language with better support (PHP, Perl, Python, Java, Ruby... even .Net with Mono).
Note that Apache:ASP can't manage classes, so you'll need to recode your classes to just variables and functions. Well, classes in classic ASP aren't so much complicated than just variables and functions...
There is a program that exists called ASP 2 PHP. With that you could migrate your application to PHP. The project leader does not recommend using it continuously as it is not, nor ever will be 100% perfect.
