Managing the ASP Server

Sun Chili!Soft ASP includes an ASP Server that processes ASP page requests. On UNIX and Linux systems, the ASP Server is managed from the Server Management page in the Administration Console. This page has two tabs (ASP Server and Web Server), which you use to access settings for the ASP Server and the Web server.

Note

The Administration Console is not available with Sun Chili!Soft ASP for Windows. On Windows NT and Windows 2000, regedit32 can be used to edit some of the Sun Chili!Soft ASP configuration settings. For more information, see "Editing the Windows Registry" in this chapter.

On Windows NT and Windows 2000, Sun Chili!Soft ASP runs automatically whenever an ASP page is requested by a user (provided the Web server is running). Sun Chili!Soft runs until the Web server is stopped. When the Web server is restarted, Sun Chili!Soft ASP will not run until an ASP page is requested by a user.

The ASP Server tab of the Server Management page displays when you open the Administration Console.
