    Hi,

    Is it possible to run a web server on a PowerMac G4 that supports ASP?
    If so what do I need to set it up?

    Many thanks,

    I'll agree with Choppaface here. PHP was very easy for me to learn (took about a week, going through a book) and has been very fast/powerful for what I've needed to do.

    What are you doing that you think you need ASP?

    I have been building my site in Dreamweaver 4 on my PC (WinXP Pro) which has IIS 5.1 Web Sever which supports ASP, and so I can test the pages out with out having to upload them first, I wanted to move over to my Mac for building it on, but I can't if it doesn't support ASP.

    I don't knwo if it has ASP, but Dreamweaver on Mac allows you to preview the pages before uploading it... so maybe it does.

    Problem there is none of the ASP (Active Server Pages) is run, the script in ASP runs server side before is presented to you in HTML format, it has to be run in a proper web server enviroment with the http protocal.
