Run ASP.Net on a Linux, Solaris UNIX, Mac OS X or FreeBSD

Q. How do I run ASP.Net on a Linux server installation?

A. Linux does not provide an application that will support ASP.NET or its application out of the box.

ASP.NET is a set of web application development technologies by Microsoft. Programmers can use it to build dynamic web sites, web applications and XML web services. It is part of Microsoft’s .NET platform and is the successor to Microsoft’s Active Server Pages (ASP) technology.

You need to use an open source implementation of the Microsoft .NET architecture called mono.

Mono provides the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix. Sponsored by Novell, the Mono open source project has an active and enthusiastic contributing community and is positioned to become the leading choice for development of Linux applications.

Mono can be run on

  • Linux
  • FreeBSD
  • UNIX
  • Mac OS X
  • Solaris
  • Windows operating systems
