Running ASP.NET in Apache, XSP

Mono's ASP.NET implementations supports two kinds of applications:

  • Web Forms (Web Applications infrastructure).
  • Web Services (the SOAP-based RPC system).

Status and tests for ASP.NET 2.0 are available in our ASPTests page.

Running ASP.NET applications

To run your ASP.NET applications with Mono, you have two options:

  • Apache hosting: use mod_mono, a module that allows Apache to serve ASP.NET applications.
  • XSP: this is a simple way to get started, a lightweight and simple webserver written in C#.

For deploying applications, we recommend the use of the mod_mono server, as that will give you all the configuration options and flexibility that come with using Apache.

For quickly getting started, get familiar with Mono and ASP.NET, XSP is the ideal solution.

More advaned users can use the HttpListener and the ASP.NET hosting to create their own hosts for ASP.NET applications.
