Even worked with ASP.NET 2.0 Site !

Following are the instruction to make Asp.Net work under apache:

– Install Apache 2.0.54

– Install Mod_AspDotNet

– Add at the end of C:Program FilesApache GroupApache2confhttpd.conf the following lines

#asp.net
LoadModule aspdotnet_module “modules/mod_aspdotnet.so”

AddHandler asp.net asax ascx ashx asmx aspx axd config cs csproj licx rem resources resx soap vb vbproj vsdisco webinfo

<IfModule mod_aspdotnet.cpp>
# Mount the ASP.NET /asp application
AspNetMount /SampleASP “c:/SampleASP”
#/SampleASP is the alias name for asp.net to execute
#”c:/SampleASP” is the actual execution of files/folders in that location

# Map all requests for /asp to the application files
Alias /SampleASP “c:/SampleASP”
#maps /SampleASP request to “c:/SampleASP”
#now to get to the /SampleASP type http://localhost/SampleASP
#It’ll redirect http://localhost/SampleASP to “c:/SampleASP”




# Allow asp.net scripts to be executed in the /SampleASP example
<Directory “c:/SampleASP”>
Options FollowSymlinks ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.aspx
#default the index page to .htm and .aspx
</Directory>

# For all virtual ASP.NET webs, we need the aspnet_client files
# to serve the client-side helper scripts.
AliasMatch /aspnet_client/system_web/(d+)_(d+)_(d+)_(d+)/(.*) “C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v$1.$2.$3/ASP.NETClientFiles/$4

<Directory “C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v*/ASP.NETClientFiles”>
Options FollowSymlinks
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>
</IfModule>
#asp.net

– Create a directory c:SampleASP and insert in it the index.aspx

– Restart apache server :
Start-> Apache HTTP Server 2.0.54 ->
Control Apache Server -> Restart

– Open Explorer and navigate to http://localhost/SampleASP/index.aspx

If everything worked fine you should get a nice asp.net page working.

— index.aspx —

<%@ Page Language=”VB” %>

<head>
<link rel=”stylesheet”href=”intro.css”>

<form action=”index.aspx” method=”post”>

</select>

<% Dim I As Integer
