Making Sure IIS 5.0 Is Supporting ASP Pages

This section provides a tutorial example on how to verify that IIS (Internet Information Services) 5.0 is configured to support ASP (Active Server Pages).

1. Go to Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, then Internet Services Manager, and right mouse click on Default Web Site, then select properties command.

2. Click on Home Directory tab on the properties dialog box, then click the Configuration button.

3. Click on App Mappings tab on the configuration dialog box, then check to see the following line in the mapping area.

Extension   Executable Path                     Verbs

.asp        c:\winnt\system32\inetsrv\asp.dll   GET,HEAD,POST,TRACE

3. Create the following hello.asp file:

<%@ language="vbscript"%>
<html><body>
<%
response.write("Hello world!")
%>
</body></html>

4. Copy hello.asp to \inetpub\wwwroot, which is the directory where the web server will take the ASP page files.

5. Run Internet Explorer (IE) with this url: http://localhost/hello.asp.

6. If you see "Hello world!" on the IE window, you know your IIS web server is serving ASP pages.
