ASP pages have the extension .asp instead of .htm, when a page with the extension .asp is requested by a browser the web server knows to interpret any ASP contained within the web page before sending the HTML produced to the browser. This way all the ASP is run on the web server and no ASP will ever be passed to the web browser.

Any web pages containing ASP cannot be run by just simply opening the page in a web browser. The page must be requested through a web server that supports ASP, this is why ASP stands for Active Server Pages, no server, no active pages.

As ASP was first introduced by Microsoft on it's web server, Internet Information Services (IIS), that runs on Windows 2000/XP Pro/NT4, it is this web server that ASP pages usually run best on.

It's big differences, it's totally different programming languages, with the same purpose, more or less.

asp/asp.net is built on VisualBasic, and uses usually VBScript och some other similar language.

PHP is built with influences from C/C++ and has a totally different structure of code

I don't think that ASP will continue to be used in IIS in the future with ASP.NET available now.

Thanks Jordan for explaining about ASP, very helpful and also I now got an ASP server on my computer. :D It only can use vbscript but it's better than nothing. :)


Doesn't '@language = "JavaScript" ' work on yours?

In my opinion, I like ASP better for a lot of cases because I can use JavaScript with that, and JavaScript is the language I am most experienced in. JavaScript can't do binary stuff, though, so if you want to build a video converter or something then PHP is probably a better choice.

Personnally, I'd use EXE instead of either, whenever I can, because that's faster than loading a PHP parser or ASP interpreter, or whatever such high-level scripting languages tend to do these days. And EXE can do a lot more, too, in most cases, depending on how you use it.
