How would I get asp onto my webserver? I want to know so that when msn gets their program out to disable the firewall in their modem, I can start hosting.

ASP support is available automatically with Windows servers using IIS for web hosting. Linux servers you'd have to use something like Chilisoft

A quick check on Fireserv shows it is made to use PHP out of the box, Does it ask if you want to download the files now ?,
Or is it just a message telling you that your missing files X,Y, & Z ?
I'd go wherever I got the software and look for ASP Extensions and the like :D

Are you using Windows XP?
You may need to download personal webserver. I think MS gives it away for free.

Like I said, Fireserv is my WEBSERVER.

It seems Fireserv is a middleman control panel for an apache server,
Quote:
This is a complete pre-configured web server suite that includes Apache 1.3.24, PHP 4.2.1, Perl, MySQL 3.23, phpMyAdmin, Zend Optimiser 2.1, MySQL Front, Fireserv Control Panel, Easy to use installer and Uninstall feature.

Looking at the way this package is setup, my advice is to either find a PHP guestbook or go with a different server package that has out of the box support for ASP.

If your hellbent on using this setup you might research ASP on Apache.

It's prompting you to download the files for two interacting reasons:

One, your webserver (Apache) doesn't know what to do with that file type, that is, it has no understanding of how to render a .asp file, so it's sending it to your browser as a chuck, instead of a stream of text (in either text/plain or text/html which your browser would understand).

That, however, isn't the only reason why you're being prompted to download. The more important of the two is that because you're browser doesn't know what to do with the .asp file extension (that is, it doesn't know its nothing but a text file), it's trying to download it instead of render it.

If you click "Open" instead of Save, you'd probably see the ASP code either in your default text editor or your browsers.

You have to configure your webserver to deal with ASP files, or it won't work. Chillisoft was mentioned, though I seem to recall there being others as well. I make a point to use whatever language is native to the server, so any work I do for Apache is done in PHP, IIS gets ASP, etc. Coldfusion gets the boot because it does nothing but waste resources copying features an existing native system already does...
