Your Solaris Virtual Private Server 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 Server. 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 Server. Be sure to have only one or the other installed on any one Virtual Private Server.
NOTE: Chili!Soft is available on the VPS platform only. Due to licensing restrictions, Chili!Soft cannot be installed on the MPS platform.
Chili!Soft is available on Solaris Virtual Private Servers for a nominal monthly fee.
When Chili!Soft is installed on your Virtual Private Server, 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 Server command prompt. If you need to stop your Chili!Soft server for any reason, the command stopcasp should be used.
The Chili!Soft web-based administration tool is available to help you manage your Chili!Soft server configuration and your ASP applications. In order to use the admin tool, you will need to start it running on your Virtual Private Server. To do this, connect to your Virtual Private Server via SSH or Telnet and run the following command.
% virtual /usr/local/casp/admtool -s
To stop the admin tool when you are finished using it, run the following command from your Virtual Private Server command prompt.
% virtual /usr/local/casp/admtool -e
Because of the load the admin tool will create on your server, we recomend that you only have it running while you are configuring or developing ASP applications on your server.
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 Server. 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.
