mod_aspdotnet is a module for Apache HTTP Server 2.0.44 or
later, running on Windows, Windows NT Service Pack 6 or later (including 2000,
2003, XP and Vista) with the .NET Framework 1.1 (or 1.0), including Microsoft's
ASP.NET hosting framework. It was originally developed by Covalent Technologies,
lived for a time at the Apache Software Foundation and is now maintained by the
hosted on SourceForge and sponsored by Covalent Technologies.
It is not known to work on non-Windows platforms, with earlier versions
of Apache, or 2.0 and later versions of the .NET framework. Consult the
project's pages for more details.
mod_aspdotnet is available as an .msi for you to get running
out of the box. Simply ensure you have installed Apache HTTP Server 2.0 or 2.2
first, and also the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, before you attempt to
install it. Two flavors are provided, one for Apache 2.0 (2.0.44 or later)
and the other for Apache 2.2. A new flavor will be required for later
version of Apache web server.
The -src.zip files contain the sources of this module.
It is not trivial to build and run without a bit of understanding, it is much
easier for most users to simply install the .msi. Note that at present,
it can only be built under Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (2002), and not
the later 2003 or 2005 Studio products, due to major changes in the way
that C++.NET files are parsed. A new flavor is under development for .NET
2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. If you want to proceed to build your own using
Visual Studio .NET 2002, please be our guest, you will be well on your way
to helping contribute to the mod-aspdotnet project! Or stay tuned for the
availability of the .NET 2.0 flavor.
We have an introduction to
help you get started, and a module reference
to detail the particulars of configuring the module.
