ASP Problem in IIS6 and Windows Server 2003

You may encounter a problem in running classic ASP in IIS6/Windows Server 2003. So you may try to test an ASP page on IIS6 and you get "Page Not Found" error. This is beacuase IIS6 by default doesn't enable any Scripting language. HTML is the only script enabled by default

To enable ASP Scripting, just open your IIS6 and on the left tree view. Click on "Web Service Extensions". The exiting extensions on the server will be listed. Click on “Active Server Pages” extension and enable it by clicking on “Allow” button. Then make a test ASP page and make sure that ASP scripting is working well.
