Chili!Soft ASP

bullet Introduction
Your Solaris Virtual Private Servers can provide total ASP support using Chili!Soft ASP a fully-compliant ASP interpreter. This means that Chili!Soft's ASP is compatible with Microsoft ASP, to ensure that applications developed with Microsoft ASP will run seamlessly on your Solaris Virtual Private Servers. Chili!Soft supports JScript and VBScript ASP layout, as well as a wide range of database interfaces, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle. In addition, Chili!Soft can connect to most remote databases. Developing ASPs for Chili!Soft can be done directly, or by using any of several popular Web site design tools, including Microsoft FrontPage and InterDev, Macromedia Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive!, and Allaire HomeSite. This wide range of support makes Chili!Soft a powerful, yet easy to use tool for designing and managing dynamic Web sites.

NOTE: Chili!Soft and ColdFusion will not work on the same Virtual Private Servers. Be sure to have only one or the other installed on any one Virtual Private Servers.

NOTE: Chili!Soft is available on the VPS platform only. Due to licensing restrictions, Chili!Soft cannot be installed on the MPS platform.


bullet Installation
Do the following, depending on your Virtual Private Servers O/S.


bullet Usage
When Chili!Soft is installed on your Virtual Private Servers, a process called caspd will start up automatically. This is the Chili!Soft daemon program. You may also see a process called caspeng running. If for some reason caspd is not running, you can start it by running startcasp from your Virtual Private Servers command prompt. If you need to stop your Chili!Soft server for any reason, the command stopcasp should be used.

NOTE: The Chili!Soft Administration Console is not available on your Virtual Private Servers. The functions available through the Administration Console can be modified by manually editing the Chili!Soft configuration files or using the command line Admin Tool (admtool).


Your Chili!Soft configuration settings are stored in a text file named casp.cnfg located in the ~/usr/local/casp/asp-apache-3000/ directory on your Virtual Private Servers. You should not need to make any changes to the default casp.cnfg file unless you are setting up advanced options such as turning on or off Virtual Subhosting, or adding applications.
