I want to know about diffrent between php or asp

php requires module compilation into apache, and typically runs on *NIX servers, ie; UNIX or Linux. Active Server Pages is a server side technology that typically is found on Windows NT / 2000 servers and requires asp.dll for scripting engine interpretation.
I write for both platforms. I find that php is far more elegant and powerful, and alot faster than asp, and I am an MCSD. Good luck.

I have to agree. I prefer PHP to ASP myself.

gcraig, Also there is no reason why you cvan't run PHP on NT/2000 servers as well, I have it one two that I currently maintain

*"typically"* php is run on linux though but yeah it runs on pretty much any evironment. curious, does asp run on linux very well, if at all?

With some commercial applications asp can run on *nix server... but asp is basically crap compared to PHP, so there shouldn't be any reason to run ASP on a real server (i.e. *nix)

I've had a quick look at ASP but not for long. Far too ugly! Stick to PHP. Also, as mentioned, PHP does seem to be faster. I have run it on a Linux server (with Apache) and an NT server (also with Apache) and the Linux server performed MUCH better. It was a lower spec machine as well!
ASP can be run on Linux Apache. I can't remember how though! I think there's a HOWTO on it. Look at http://www.linux.org or check http://www.apache.org. If you really want to know but can't find it then mail me and I'll find out.

The best reason:
PHP uses C as it's base language,
ASP uses VisualBasic/Quick Basic.
Should I say anymore ??
Which would you choose ?

Yeah, ASP's fo' sissies. It's funny too, you mention com objects, it's pretty hard to write code for com objects with VB becuase VB is not an object oriented language. It doesn't support implementation inheritance, so you have to use 'interface inheritance' which ends up being a ridiculously complex work around that microsoft swears is the next best thing to windows DNA, or is that .NET, or ASP+, or ADO+, or C#, or SOAP? If you want to be a MS developer, be prepared to face the fact that by the time you get your app on the web, microsoft will have re-invented your whole CLD (cirular locomotive device), and even thought your app won't actually be out of date, microsoft's marketing team will make you believe it is.
