Classic ASP Application/Script won't run!


This seems to be the most common problem that people have.

ASP need's to be run through a web server, hence the name Active Server Pages, no Server, no Active Pages. If you are not familiar with ASP please read through the article on, What is Active Server Pages (ASP)?

If you are finding that you can't get an ASP script to run on your web space provided by your web space provider then check with them that they fully support ASP.

ASP is completely different to CGI and Pearl, so having support for CGI does not mean that you have support on your web space for ASP.

How can I tell if my web space supports ASP?

To be able to tell if your web space provider supports ASP, the easiest way is to look at any FAQ or support pages that your hosting provider may have, or contact them by email or phone and ask them.

ASP and Database Issues

The other biggest problem that seems to occur is if the script uses a database and is not running correctly or not at all. If the script is using a database then please look at the, ASP application uses an Access database and has an error , Knowledegbase Article.

The page cannot be displayed. HTTP 500 - Internal server error

If you are receiving this generic error message when trying to run an ASP page please see our knowldegsebase article HTTP 500 - Internal Server Error.
