Defining Applications in a Shared Environment

For the ASP Server to process an ASP application, the set of directories and files comprising the application must be defined as an ASP application. In dedicated Web hosting environments, you define an ASP application by "adding" it to the ASP Server, as described in "Configuring ASP Applications" in this chapter.

However, in a shared Web hosting environment in which you are using virtual hosts, such as with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or Internet Presence Provider (IPP), you do not "add" applications in this manner. Instead, the top-level, or root, directory of each virtual host defined on your Web server is automatically defined as an ASP application. No other steps are necessary to enable ASP processing for the application.

There might be some situations, however, in which you want to enable or disable ASP processing for a particular virtual host. You can do this by using the Sun Chili!Soft ASP Administration Console, as described in "Enabling ASP for a Virtual Host" in this chapter.

FrontPage users can also define an application as described in "Using the FrontPage Services File in a Shared Environment" in this chapter.
