Is it possible to host an ASP site on centOS 5?

Postby Lightnighawk » 2009/08/24 20:49:54

I am changing to a dedicated server that is using centos5.

One of my websites was built in ASP, but does not link
to the database or anything anymore. Its just a simple site now.

I was wondering if there was anyway to make this site
work on my new host. If yes, then how can I do so.

I read something about a couple of softwares we could
install Mono or Chilisoft, but I am completely unfimiliar
with linux.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Mods Note: I didn't really think this fit in the webhosting forum since I am not the hosting provider.
If I'm wrong please inform me

See

http://www.mono-project.com/

Preferred installation is using yum - not the Novell installer. Word of warning - mono is a Novell project so there is a debian slant, add a little m$ft hysteria and you have got real turbulence. The often referenced RHEL_5 repo at opensuse.org no longer exists, so pay attention if you decide to use an external repo.

Mono is available from CentOS extras. The easiest way to install it will be to use yum's group-related options. Try:

yum grouplist

to see all the groups available. Mono is one of them. Then,

yum groupinstall Mono

will install required packages.

Thanks Guys for the rapid responses.

I'm not very knowledgeable with linux or these cpanel admin panels. But I'll google it out, and see if I can get this installed.

I may be back though to get a little more help.

I'm going to give mono a shot with the novel install.
Thanks.

Toracat you mentioned CentOS extras
Where is this located?

Which version of Mono am I supposed to use?

openSUSE?

Sorry I was trying to avoid needing a step by step. But I'd hate to get the wrong package.
Thanks

Use the version supplied in the CentOS repositories! :-o

Please look to see just what is available --

Code: Select all

[b]yum list mono\*[/b]

Okay. I'll give it a shot.
I am a tech not a webmaster, but my boss has insisted this is how we are going to do things.

Thanks for your help and patience

It would be best to follow toracat's advice in post #3. With root's powers --

Code: Select all

[b]yum groupinstall Mono[/b]
