What is ASP and which version do I have installed?

This article applies to Windows Dedicated Servers.

This article explains the functionality of Active Server Pages (ASP).

Active Server Pages (ASP) is a server side scripting technology, which can be used to easily build dynamic web pages. Our Windows 2003 servers run Internet Information Server (IIS) 6, offering full support for ASP version 3.

Using ASP

Our servers support ASP Scripts written in VBScriptJscript and PerlScript, the server default is VBScript. In order for the server to parse the file as an ASP script, it must have the extension .asp. Your default pages can be called index.asp or default.asp.

Debugging ASP Scripts

Our servers are configured to send detailed error messages to the browser window, these error messages can be used to identify errors in your ASP code.

Please note: Chat/IRC, web proxy and mailing list scripts are not allowed on our network under any circumstances.
