My host provider is webhostingpad (VPS) and I want to install an asp script that needs to run setup.asp but if I run www.mydomain.com/forum/setup.asp
it will just returns the text code of the file setup.as without running it! well I am not familiar with asp scripts so I may be missing something obvious, is this something that the host needs to support it ?
If you're not running Windows+IIS you're not going to be able to use ASP. You might be able to use one of the Linux ASP modules however if you really want to use ASP I recommend using Windows based hosting.
It is linux based host, so I guess I am out of luck.
Is there any workaround for this?
In all honesty, if you want to use ASP, you should go with a Windows-based hosting provider. There are linux hosts that offer ChiliSoft ASP but I have found that it doesn't work as well as ASP in a Windows hosting environment.
