I have been a professional developer for many years (mainly large C++ and Java applications at big companies), but I am fairly new to web development. Since I am trying to branch out on my own as a freelancer, I have settled on PHP and MySQL as the technologies of choice. My question is, if a client is already using ASP, does that pretty much lock you into ASP? Can PHP and ASP coexist? I am assuming the problem really narrows down to what web server they are using. I am assuming that if they are using IIS, then there would be problems with Apache coexistance?
If you can share some insight into this, I’d appreciate it.
I had that same question, and had thought it wasn’t possible. But I have found instructions through a google search for installing php on Windows Server 2003… also, in searching for a new webhost, I noticed two (seem to be two of the top) hosting companies that list PHP as a supported feature right next to ASP.NET, all running on Windows Server 2003. So, it looks like it can be done.
