have a new client who already serves his own company website off his mac server...dunno what version tho...
he want's to become a dynamic site, and as we're MS folks, we always offer an ASP/IIS solution...usually via SQL or sometimes mySQL.
BUT i can find no data that will tell me IF we create .asp pages etc. IF they can be served via a mac server -- instead of our own IIS boxes...
anyone know? is there a "work-around" available?
anyone? This would be a great client...but we'll have to 'pass' if we cant create our own solutions....
I'd be cautious about going down the ASP on Mac road. It's not exactly industry standard.
There is a BIG difference between MacOS 9 and MacOS X (in one line, X is Unix, and 9 isn't) so find out what your client uses before you get too deep in.
Since you're not a Mac shop, you'll also want to steer away from any "Mac-centric" solutions like FileMaker Pro and Lasso.
You might be more interested in PHP, which can be used on Windows/Mac OS X/Unix, and is very popular, and easy to use with MySQL (which also runs under PC/MacOS X/Unix).
Otherwise, maybe talk your client into letting you host his site?
Just my 2¢.
