Why learn ASP? It's not as popular, portable, or powerful as PHP. Python's rather nice too, although it would probably be a lot harder to learn than PHP.

Go to http://www.microsoft.com there you might get some help I think, Im sure you can download IIS somewhere or you can even google IIS then download it to your PC. This way you can use it for ASP.

No. It's available as part of Windows XP Professional or Windows Server 2003, and is no longer available for download.

Wait. Did Microsoft make ASP? I thought it was just another web coding service. But whatever. ASP is way too hard for me, I can't make heads or tails of the FrontPage Server Extension files, much less ASP as a whole.

There is asp and asp.net - asp.net is Microsoft's baby, at least now. I think asp (active server pages) was around before MS got its hands in it and there are still servers that do support asp but not asp.net.

If you are looking for some other web server that supports ASP (classic ASP) then try the following web servers

Sun Java System Active Server Pages 4.0 (http://www.sun.com/software/chilisoft/)

Apache ASP (http://www.apache-asp.org/support.html)

I have started paying attention to PHP also on your suggestion. Thanks for the advice

I would suggest downloading XAMPP (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html) if you are working on Windows platform.

This package integrates PHP, Apache and MySQL and it is available as a single Exe file execute the file and that will install all the above mentioned item without any difficulty.
