ASP.NET in Apache Server

How to make Apache run ASP.NET / ASP.NET 2.0

Following are the instruction to make Asp.Net work under apache:

– Install Apache 2.0.54

– Install Mod_AspDotNet

– Add at the end of C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf the following lines
LoadModule aspdotnet_module "modules/"

AddHandler asax ascx ashx asmx aspx axd config cs csproj licx rem resources resx soap vb vbproj vsdisco webinfo

<IfModule mod_aspdotnet.cpp> 
  # Mount the ASP.NET /asp application
  AspNetMount /SampleASP "c:/SampleASP"
  #/SampleASP is the alias name for to execute
  #"c:/SampleASP" is the actual execution of files/folders  in that location

  # Map all requests for /asp to the application files
  Alias /SampleASP "c:/SampleASP"
  #maps /SampleASP request to "c:/SampleASP"
  #now to get to the /SampleASP type
  #It'll redirect
http://localhost/SampleASP to "c:/SampleASP"

  # Allow scripts to be executed in the /SampleASP example
  <Directory "c:/SampleASP">
    Options FollowSymlinks ExecCGI
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    DirectoryIndex index.htm index.aspx
   #default the index page to .htm and .aspx

  # For all virtual ASP.NET webs, we need the aspnet_client files
  # to serve the client-side helper scripts.
  AliasMatch /aspnet_client/system_web/(\d+)_(\d+)_(\d+)_(\d+)/(.*) "C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v$1.$2.$3/ASP.NETClientFiles/$4"
  <Directory "C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v*/ASP.NETClientFiles">
    Options FollowSymlinks
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

– Create a directory c:\SampleASP and insert in it the index.aspx

– Restart apache server :
 Apache HTTP Server 2.0.54 ->
   Control Apache Server -> Restart

– Open Explorer and navigate to http://localhost/SampleASP/index.aspx

If everything worked fine you should get a nice page working.

 — index.aspx —

<%@ Page Language="VB" %>
      <link rel="stylesheet"href="intro.css">
       <form action="index.aspx" method="post"> 
           <h3> Name: <input id="Name" type=text> 
           Category:  <select id="Category" size=1> 
           <input type=submit value="Lookup"> 
           <% Dim I As Integer
              For I = 0 to 7 %>
              <font size="<%=I%>"> Sample ASP.NET TEST</font> <br>
           <% Next %>
